It seems like if he put that much effort into non-nefarious practices he probably would have been able to secure some of those positions he had been declined from.

Re: New Mexico Man Sentenced on DDoS, Gun Charges
This post is one of several on the various tech boards that appear to have the intent of finding this to be a "victory" of sorts against DDoSers. There's a "this bad guy finally got the punishment he deserved" element to the tale.

Unfortunately, that might not be the case. This guy's a repeat felon with en existing firearms possession as a felon conviction that he did federal time for. He was facing the possibility of 15 years to life for the firearms charges alone - to get a 15-year maximum sentence for those charges and have the DDoS charge resolved as well is a gift, not the major deterrent to the crime that some folks might think it is.
