Redmond Man Convicted for Wire Fraud


The Boston Globe is reporting that a Redmond Oregon man has been convicted in federal court in Boston on wire fraud charges.  Federal officials say the charges are in connection to a $1 million scheme to steal Internet access and sell products that allowed others to do the same.  Yesterday the jury convicted Ryan Harris of Redmond on seven counts of wire fraud.  From 2003 to 2009, Harris developed and distributed hardware and software tools that allowed his customers to modify their cable modems so they could disguise themselves as paying subscribers, and get Internet service without paying for it. Each count carries a maximum prison term of 20 years and a fine of up to $250,000. The sentencing for Ryan Harris is scheduled for May 23.
