Honored to be part of the Team: From 44 Felony Counts to One Misdemeanor, Plea Entered in U.S. v. Salinas CFAA Case

A plea deal has been entered in the case of US v. Salinas. Mr. Salinas’ legal team successfully negotiated an agreement that reduced a 44 felony count indictment down to a single misdemeanor count.

Tor Ekeland led Salinas’ legal team and did the heavy lifting on getting this deal done. I am honored that Tor invited me to be a part of the team as well; it was great to have the opportunity to work alongside such outstanding lawyers as Tor, Alma Garza, Meredith Heller, and the rest of the Team. Thanks Tor!
