SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) Former San Francisco computer engineer Terry Childs has been convicted of locking other city officials out of the city's network for 12 days.
A jury found the 45-year-old guilty Tuesday of one felony count of denying or disrupting computer services to an authorized user. The charge stemmed from a 12-day period in July 2008 when Childs changed the passwords to the system and refused to divulge them to anyone.
He ultimately gave them to Mayor Gavin Newsom during a jailhouse visit.
Childs, who has been jailed since his arrest, is scheduled to be sentenced on June 14. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
