Hacker gets 10 years
Edwin Andres Pena, 27, is also known as Javier Alejandro Sanchez Rinco, David Hauster and Renato Moreno.
Pena, born in Venezuela, masterminded a scheme that allowed him to drive expensive fast cars and party like a rock star in South Beach.
He identified himself as a telecommunications security expert under a telecommunications company named Miami Tech & Consulting Inc., but what was really bringing in the dough was a fraudulent operation he was running under a company named Fortes Telecom Inc.
Pena was arrested in 2009, after he was spotted pretending to be a legitimate wholesale provider of Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP), a telephone call service, while offering prices that caused companies to go bankrupt.
This week, he was sentenced to 10 years in prison for masterminding a scheme that allowed him to use other companies legitimate computer networks to route his customers' calls.

Porcelain pistols are so Edna
I love this porcelain pistol by artist Yvonne Lee Schultz.
It would look fabulous in Edna Buchanan's Miami Beach home.

Mad about a high-speed chaseFOXNEWS vis Schnittsshow.com
Janelle Espinoza was very upset after watching the end of a high-speed chase on TV Wednesday morning.
The chase began when a Coral Springs police officer spotted a stolen 1991 white Toyota Camry.
"One car was stolen. That should not have put so many people in danger," said Espinoza, during a phone call conversation.
The Coral Springs officer followed his department's guidelines, and did not pursue the suspect after a red-light violation. A Broward Sheriff's Office deputy began to follow the suspects at Pine Island Road.
After 15 minutes of erratic driving through Broward and Miami-Dade, a BSO deputy hit the suspect's car near Opa-Locka in Hialeah.
What followed the crash that left one person injured, infuriated Espinoza.
"The officers attacked these kids. They pulled them, and tasered them," said Espinoza. "I could not believe what I was watching ... There was excessive force. I want every one at the Herald to know that there are many viewers who are not happy with the police officers' behavior."
The three suspects who were in the car were arrested. One was injured in the process.
What do you think? Do you agree or disagree with Espinoza?
