Man Removes His ‘Anonymous’ Mask After Steubenville Rape Trial

By Jim Heath

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The man behind the Guy Fawkes mask, known online as KyAnonymous, revealed himself to supporters in front of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Columbus on Monday.

Deric Lostutter admits he’s part of hacker-activist collective Anonymous, but says he’s done nothing illegal and was compelled to come forward after the FBI raided his Kentucky home in April.

“It was kind of intense,” said Lostutter.  “They came out with M16 assault rifles. CIS, two state troopers, the local sheriff — all for my little computer.”

About a dozen supporters delivered boxes of petitions to the U.S. Attorney’s Office Monday.

Many chanted, “We demand justice for Deric” and held signs “Deric is a hero.”

They’ve also raised $50,000 for his legal defense fund.

Hiding behind the mask, Lostutter, a self-employed IT security specialist, went by the online name KyAnonymous during the Steubenville rape trial.

Hacker activists helped propel national coverage of the rape case.

Lostutter admits posting a web video showing a student joking about the attack, but says he didn’t hack any computers.

“The information I had was there possibly (was) a cover up going on,” said Lostutter.

Two Steubenville football players were convicted of rape.

Ma’Lik Richmond was sentenced to at least a year in the state juvenile detention system.

Trent Mays was sentenced to at least two years in juvenile detention.  He was also convicted of photographing the underage girl naked.

Melanie Jones of Demand Progress says Lostutter could face 10-25 years in prison if found guilty of computer crimes and that’s unfair.

“Because someone stepped up and said there is corruption in this case and rape culture is wrong, he was going to be made an example of,” said Jones. “Having a man step forward and say ‘rape is wrong’ and be punished for it is the worst lesson you could give any generation, certainly mine.”

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office told 10TV on Monday that the protestors were respectful.

“But there is an investigation under way into a possible crime of computer hacking, so we really can’t say anything,” the spokesman said.

Three teen witnesses were granted immunity from prosecution by a judge to allow them to testify against the two players.

State prosecutors are still investigating whether coaches or school administrators knew of the rape allegation but failed to report it.

Lostutter says he did the right thing.

“Behind the mask, I’m a whole completely different dude than you expect some computer guy to be, so I can stare adversity in the face and come right at it,” said Lostutter.

The government could indict Lostutter on alleged felony violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

Lostutter’s attorney on Monday asked the government to return his computer and dismiss the investigation.

10 people showed up to hear Deric Lostutter/ Aka KY Anonymous speak outside of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office. It was very apparent that no one from #oprollredroll or those involved in Steubenville were in attendance. In fact, unless any of the 10 supporters who showed were anons and just were  unmasked for the day, it’s fair to say that no members of anonymous were present to support Ky as he spoke to his supporters and wanted to demand his charges be dropped. KY has not been charged with a crime in the 2 months since the FBI raid on his home, but his attorney’s are confident “He will be charged any day now.”

Ky is still facing heavy public scrutiny over raising over $53,500 for his legal defense for when  charges are filed against him. Ky wearing a white Knightsec tshirt available from his website, and wearing a guy fawkes mask on top of his head accompanied supporters inside the building to deliver a 200,000 signature petition to drop the possible pending charges against the 26-year-old rapper. Over the weekend another anon, @anonforecast claimed to have been raided by the FBI in connection with #oprollredroll In which this anon who had nothing to do with Steubenville was questioned about certain screen names from twitter and had his phone seized.

Ky Read a prepared statement from his phone, and the petition to the AG’s office was delivered. The rally lasted around 38 minutes which is a drastic switch from the #occupysteubenville rallies which would last 3-4 hours.

Further internet controversy occurred over the weekend when Ky Anonymous compared himself to recently deceased journalist Michael Hastings.

Where have all of Ky’s supporters gone?
