Unlawful 0800 use case goes before jury

Northants man out on bail pending trial

A teenager who appeared before magistrates in Northamptonshire charged with a number of Net-related offences has opted to be tried at crown court. Christopher Buckley, 18, from Oundle, Northamptonshire, was released on bail by magistrates on Friday. The case was adjourned until 18 February. It's charged that Buckley used a BT freephone 0800 number to access the Net without authorisation or permission. He's also been charged with posting material on newsgroups that may have caused "an annoyance" and for using profanities. All three charges are being brought under Section 1 of the Computer Misuse Act 1990 and Section 42 of the Telecommunications Act 1984. ® Related Stories: 0800 court case adjourned...
