'Topiary' suspect bailed

Stays on the mainland

The Scottish teenager accused of involvement in LulzSec and Anonymous attacks has been freed on bail.

Eighteen-year-old Jake Davis appeared at Horseferry Road Magistrates Court today. He will have to wear an electronic tag to enforce a nighttime curfew and stay at his mother's house in central England, AP reports. He may not access the internet directly or through anyone else.

Davis faces five charges, including involvement in an attack which brought down the Serious Organised Crime Agency's own website. Other charges relate to denial of service attacks on News International and Sony sites.

He was arrested last week.

Davis will be back in court 30 August. ®
