If homebrew is your thing, you better listen up. A recent case involving a college student that is being charged with illegally modding Xbox 360’s is heading to a jury trial where he could spend up to 3 years in prison if convicted. Luckily for him, he has Judge Philip Gutierrez on the bench.
“I really don’t understand what we’re doing here,” U.S. District Judge Philip Gutierrez roared from the bench.
…Among the judge’s host of complaints against the government was his alarm that prosecutors would put on two witnesses who may have broken the law.
Allegedly, one of the prosecutors expert witnesses, Microsoft security employee Ken McGrail, has himself admitted to modding Xbox consoles while in college.
If there is one lesson we can learn from all of this, college is for hooking up with girls and modding gaming consoles. I guess the old saying is true that boys will be boys.
