Brett Hudson will admit he’s guilty “and he’s going to get on with his life,” defense attorney Warner Mariani said.
Hudson, 26, of Hillsboro, is scheduled to enter the plea Oct. 17 in federal court. He and Alexander Waterland, 24, of Loveland, were indicted in August on a charge of conspiring to commit interstate extortion using a computer. The FBI said the men claimed to be members of the hacking group Anonymous who had obtained confidential computer information on students and faculty.
Waterland has pleaded not guilty and his attorney didn’t immediately return a call Tuesday. Online court records indicate he still plans to contest the charge at trial.
