On Tuesday, Sibe received a sentence of 6 months in the Oregon state
pen, plus three years' parole. The month he's been in jail pending the
sentencing hearing does not count toward the six months.
If (and this seems likely) he is charged and convicted of additional
crimes (there is a federal investigation regarding his art piracy and
hacking), this would be served after his time is up at the state pen
(effectively the sentence would be added, though it'd be served at a
federal prison instead of the state pen).
Its the dawn of a new, better day for Sibe's victims, and for most of
the furry fandom who feel they lost something with several great
artists having permanently departed the fandom as a result of Sibe's
piracy and abuses. Hopefully the upcoming federal charges will keep
him behind bars for years ...
