Man sentenced who leaked San Andreas

Recommended Posts

Last year several leaked media spun onto the web which included photos of the box art, manual, the promotional poster and map of the PS2 version of San Andreas. The person who took these photos worked for the Take Two plant and stole a copy of the video game. The leaked copy was then later posted on several warez sites which allowed everyone to download San Andreas weeks before the release on October 26.

The FBI followed the case and then later captured the man known as "Stephen Dottoli". Yesterday, he was sentenced in federal court in Camden, NJ to two years probation. He also will have to serve six months on home confinement and pay a $2,500 fine.

Even though Dottoli was a suspect for posting San Andreas onto the internet, the authorities couldn't find any effidence to prove it. U.S. District Court Judge Robert Kugler says that he would have faced stiffer penalties if he had done so.

It's pretty much like being in jail except you're at home. Probation you're allowed to do pretty much the regular lifely things. But one wrong move and it's no questions asked, straight to jail I do believe. Home confinement I believe is where you in "jail".... Your own home.

This is funny news. But I wonder if anyone cares. People got their copies already, so arresting this guy isn't changing much,

How did the FBI get the evidence?

Someone came forward with evidence, like Jordan over at planetgta says:

....And someone did contact Rockstar with important information, but I have decided not to name them.

Yeah lol I do agree no one realy cares after so long. But think how Rockstar felt as someone leaked their game which they spent years and millions of dollars on. This is just fare.
