Ky Anonymous: How Much Money is Enough?

Ky Anonymous has raised 53k for his legal defense, who knows how much for personal bills, and recently started a fund to start his own business. Now, he and his long-time girlfriend have split up so he needs $800.00 to get his own apartment despite having a job.

Where do we draw the line? Normal people struggle everyday, but they don’t use Anonymous and a rape victim to fund their lives.

Ky Anonymous is yet to be charged with any crimes despite what he and his former attorney had said about being charged a month in a half ago.

He loses supporters for this reason: He attacks people who ask him about the misinformation he spreads, and continues to use Steubenville and Anonymous to beg for money.

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.

Drop The Charges Against Deric Lostutter/ Ky Anonymous Rally in Columbus, Ohio Has Low Turnout

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?

Another Raid- #oprollredroll

PRESS RELEASE:
CONTACT: Susan Basko, Lawyer

phone: 310-770-7413
NOTE: Please do not send inquiries to the emails/phone number previously associated with Aaron
Bale, as those have been seized by the FBI.

Re: AnonForecast Home Raided by FBI

On Thursday, June 20, 2013, at about 6am the FBI raided the Louisville, Kentucky, home of Aaron Bale, also known as AnonForecast, with regard to
the so-called KnightSec, also known as OpRedRoll, an online activity seeking justice for a high school rape victim in Steubenville, Ohio.

NO INVOLVEMENT. PUBLICLY DENOUNCED. 
Aaron Bale has not had any involvement whatsoever with KnightSec or OpRedRoll and had actually been publicly outspoken in not supporting the project because the rape trials had not even taken place yet. Mr. Bale felt sympathetic to the rape victim, but did not approve of the pretrial timing of the online protest activity, and stated this online, as well as on a radio program.

FBI FISHING EXPEDITION.
Mr. Bale appears to have been raided as part of a “fishing expedition” by the FBI. He may also have been raided because he also happens to live in Kentucky, where KYAnonymous/ Deric Lostutter resides, although Aaron Bale does not know Mr. Lostutter and has had no dealings with him.

NOT ARRESTED OR CHARGED:

Aaron Bale was not arrested or charged with any crime.

RAID. ITEMS SEIZED. LIST OF SCREEN NAMES.
FBI Agent Detective Dan Jackman came to Mr. Bale’s door at about 6 AM on June 20, 2013, and showed him a list of dozens of screen names. FBI Detective Dan Jackman asked Mr. Bale to provide information about any screen names that he recognized, but Mr. Bale refused to discuss without a lawyer present. The first page of the list appeared to have two columns of screen names. Agent Jackman then presented a search warrant signed by U.S. Magistrate Dave Whalin. Eleven agents with guns entered Mr. Bale’s tiny one bedroom apartment. They seized Mr. Bale’s computer, his phone that doubles as a medical device/ cognitive orthotic, a diary/ writing/poetry journal, many old, broken, outdated pieces of computer repair equipment previously owned by others, blank CDs, old music CDs and tapes Mr. Bale has not listened to since high school, etc.

GOOD COP/BAD COP
During the raid, Detective Jackman and another FBI agent attempted to play an obvious game of “Good Cop/ Bad Cop” with Mr. Bale, telling him that “his friend” KyAnon (Lostutter) had “ratted on” him and others and that the Agent leading the KYAnonymous case was really responsible for and orchestrating the raid. Mr. Bale did not fall for this, and knows that he has never had any dealings whatever with Mr. Lostutter and that Mr. Lostutter is represented by an attorney (Jason Flores Williams).

BRAIN INJURY. FBI TAKES CRUCIAL MEDICAL DEVICE:
Aaron Bale is a survivor of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) from a jeep accident in 2003, and also has narcolepsy, facts that he openly publicizes. Mr. Bale’s cell phone that was seized by the FBI is a medically-prescribed “cognitive orthotic” that is part of managing his activities of daily living (ADLs) as well as a mandatory tool in his neurological rehab. Because Mr. Bale’s cognitive orthotic has been seized by the FBI, causing him to be able to adhere to the program’s requirements, Mr. Bale’s insurance has cancelled his neurological rehab. This is devastating. Mr. Bale has been specially trained to use the phone and its special “smart alarm” apps for such things as taking his medicines, observing his breathing to prevent it from becoming depressed or stopping, waking, sleeping, scheduling and reminders for activities of daily living (ADLs), such as eating dinner, showering, washing laundry, and other crucial living functions.

Aaron Bale’s phone/ cognitive orthotic is absolutely crucial to his daily living and struggle to stay alive and healthy. He cannot afford to replace the phone and its service. It took a lot of money, time, effort and professional help to get the phone applications set properly and get Mr. Bale trained in use of the phone for his health needs. Mr. Bale’s health and safety are greatly and immediately endangered by the FBI seizing his crucial medical device.

FBI REFUSES TO RETURN MEDICAL DEVICE.
Requests by this writer/ Lawyer, Susan Basko, to FBI Detective Dan Jackman as well as to his supervisor, Mike Russo, both of the Louisville, Kentucky FBI Office, have not resulted in return of Aaron Bale’s cognitive orthotic/ phone. It was suggested to the FBI that if the FBI felt the need to seize a crucial medical device from a patient, then the FBI should readily and immediately provide the funds to replace the device and the services supporting it. The FBI has not done this, either.
