URGENT: Jeremy Hammond is about to be sentenced for CFAA violations. Send a letter to his judge!

Jeremy Hammond is a gifted young computer programmer facing a decade in prison for violations of the the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) -- the same abusive and outdated law under which Aaron Swartz was prosecuted last year. 

His crime? Leaking information from the private intelligence firm Strategic Forecasting, revealing that Stratfor had been spying on human rights activists at the behest of corporations and the U.S. government. 

Jeremy's sentencing is fast approaching. Sign to the right to send a letter to his judge asking for leniency.

Just like Aaron, Jeremy did nothing for personal gain and everything in hopes of making the world a better place. And yet since March of 2012, Jeremy has been denied bail, cut off from his family, and held in solitary confinement -- treatment normally reserved for the most egregious offenses. 

His co-defendents in Ireland and the UK face no more than 16 months in prison. Some of them have already been released. But thanks to the draconian CFAA, Jeremy faces a maximum sentence of ten years behind bars.

Every letter could make the difference between Jeremy spending years behind bars, and getting to return to his family. Please help by signing to the right.
