Jake Davis, allegedly known online as ‘Topiary’, released on bail after being charged with five offences
Jake Davis, an 18-year-old from the Shetland Islands, was released on bail on Monday after being charged with five offences relating to computer attacks and break-ins by the LulzSec and Anonymous hacking groups earlier this year.
The black-haired Davis, wearing a black T-shirt under a blue denim shirt and holding a copy of a book called Free radicals: The Secret Anarchy of Science, showed little reaction as the charges were read out at the City of Westminster magistrates’ court in Horseferry Road, London.
Davis was granted bail to stay with his mother at their new home in Spalding, Lincolnshire, on condition that he does not access the internet either directly or through anyone else. He also has to wear a tag to ensure a 10pm to 7am curfew.
