A bail hearing by Zoom for the 17-year-old who hacked some of the world’s highest-profile Twitter accounts last month was interrupted Wednesday by pornographic video and music.Graham Ivan Clark’s lawyers were asking a Florida court to lower their client’s bail, saying the $725,000 he’s required to post to get out of jail is disproportionate to the alleged amount of the loss in the case, when the raunchy images were broadcast into the hearing.The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Fla., released the photo Graham Ivan Clark, 17, after his arrest Friday, July 31, 2020. Clark is accused of hacking Twitter, gaining access to the account of Bill Gates, Elon Musk and many others. Clark was able to scam people around the globe of more than $100,000 in Bitcoin. He remains in jail on the $725,000 bond.Clark later agreed to forfeit 100 Bitcoins from that account as part of an agreement with authorities in Florida and California under which he wasn’t prosecuted and admitted no wrongdoing, Weisbrod said.Prosecutor Darrell Dirks urged the judge to keep Clark in jail, saying authorities are still investigating the extent of the hack and that the loss may be greater than $117,000. The judge hadn’t ruled on the bail request when he was forced to cancel the hearing because of the porn bombs.“The defendant’s conduct regarding the stealing of the identities of famous people and his attempt to hijack the funds of innocent individuals in less than four hours, that occurred 20 days ago,” Dirks said. “We are still discovering the breadth and depth of the defendant’s criminal conduct.”In the end, the judge kept the bond as it is but granted the request to remove the condition that Clark prove the source of his funds, Weisbrod said after the hearing.
TRAINER Richard Azan yesterday said though MONEY MAGNET’s lineage points to speed, he is convinced that she will use her class to stay this afternoon’s Caribbean Choice Jamaica Oaks over 2000 metres. Though bred to sprint, Azan’s filly is a versatile winner of three races. She has competed at distances ranging from five furlongs to a mile – at which she placed third behind SHE’S A MANEATER and BILINGUAL in the 1000 Guineas three weeks ago. She is by Nuclear Wayne out of Jazzy Jet, whose sire is Al’s River Cat, is a renowned speed stallion. “Strange enough, Al’s River Cat is out of River Man, who comes from a line of stayers. However, everything Al’s River Cat has thrown in Jamaica are sprinters,” Azan pointed out. “However, when horses run among their peers, by virtue of class, they seem to do things they would not normally do in open company,” he added. “SAINT CECELIA, as a sprinter won the Oaks comfortably, she was running against her peers. I believe it will be a competitive race. “I would not be surprised if MONEY MAGNET runs a really good race, and I give her as good a chance as anybody.”

I watched basically the entire game a couple years ago,” Federer said. “I’ve had some tough ones against him in the past. He can play well in fast courts.“Look, I’m playing good tennis.

Arsenal midfielder Xhaka ‘unhappy’ after Brighton drawby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka admits they must improve after their 1-1 draw with Brighton.The Switzerland international started in midfield, before moving into a back three for a goalless second half.Xhaka said, “Of course we wanted to take three points. We tried our best and I think we had a good game today, but maybe with a bit of luck we could have got the three points. We’re not so happy at the moment.”At 1-0 we had two or three good chances where the keeper was excellent. But after it went to 1-1, from our corner and a long ball, it can happen but if you come here and concede a goal like this, it’s not good enough.”It was difficult in the second half. Brighton were good in defence, they stayed compact and played on the counter. We had chances, not as many as in the first half, but that’s football and we have to improve a lot of things.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
