Raynaldo Rivera surrendered to U.S. authorities on the 28th of August in Phoenix, Ariz. six days after a federal grand jury in Los Angeles returned an indictment charging him with conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer.

Raynaldo is a 20 year old computer science student from Tempe, Ariz. and an accused LulzSec hacker known, allegedly, as “wildicv,” “neuron,” and “royal.” If convicted, Raynaldo faces up to 15 years in prison.

The indictment, unsealed on Tuesday, accuses Raynaldo and “co-conspirators” of stealing information from Sony in May and June of last year. The indictment accuses Raynaldo of having cooperated with the attack, having helped to post confidential information onto LulzSec’s website and announce the attack via the LulzSec Twitter account.
