Israeli sentenced to 14 months in jail for hacking Madonna

Hacking and leaking Madonna’s unreleased recordings online does not pay, as Adi Lederman learned receiving a 14 month sentence from the Tel Aviv Magistrate’s Court on Thursday as part of a plea bargain deal following his conviction for cyber crimes against the pop singer.

The full wrath of Israeli and US authorities, including the FBI, came down on Lederman for charges of computer trespassing, fraud, and intellectual property offenses against the superstar who has come through Israel on several tours and is known as a fan of Jewish mysticism.

In December 2014, a series of demos from Madonna’s album-in-progress, Rebel Heart, were leaked online.
