U.S. and British government officials have begun a global crackdown against pro-WikiLeaks "hacktivists" who briefly shut down Mastercard, Visa, Paypal and Amazon.com December 9.

An Akron, Ohio, woman was released from jail on Wednesday after serving 9 days of a 10-day sentence for enrolling her children in a neighboring school district. Kelley Williams-Bolar, 40, was convicted of two felony counts of tampering with records by providing false information on sworn registration forms, applications for free or reduced-price school lunches, and other forms she submitted to the Copley-Fairlawn School District, where she enrolled her two daughters. She was found guilty after a four-day jury trail and was sentenced to five years on each count, with all but 10 days suspended. Common Pleas Court Judge Patricia Cosgrove credited the defendant with one-day served for the day she was arrested and jailed on the felony charges in November of 2009. The judge also sentenced Williams-Bolar to two years probation and 80 days of community service.
