Teen hacker suspect Ryan Cleary in the clink for bail breach

LulzSec accused broke the offline rule

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Teenage LulzSec suspect Ryan Cleary is back behind bars after breaching his bail conditions by going online, it has emerged.

Cleary, 19, from Wickford in Essex, who was charged with participating in denial of service attacks against the Serious Organised Crime Agency and the British Phonographic Industry last June, violated an order to stay off the internet, his solicitor said.

According to cops, the breach occurred when Cleary allegedly contacted Hector Xavier "Sabu" Monsegur – whom the FBI has fingered as the leader of the LulzSec hacktivist collective – several times over the Christmas period. Monsegur had allegedly been acting as an FBI informant since at least last August.

The alleged interaction led to Cleary's re-arrest on 5 March, the day before the FBI dropped the veil on Monsegur's alleged role as a supergrass against Anonymous and LulzSec activists.

Cleary's solicitor Karen Todner confirmed that Cleary is being held in Chelmsford Prison, northeast of London. Cleary, who was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome while in custody last year, is scheduled to reappear before a judge in May. ®
