The mother of a writer and activist connected to the hacking collective Anonymous is set for sentencing for helping hide laptops from federal agents.

Karen Lancaster McCutchin is scheduled to be sentenced Friday after pleading guilty in May to obstructing execution of a search warrant related to a federal investigation of her son, Barrett Lancaster Brown.

Prosecutors say she agreed to hide two laptops belonging to Brown in a kitchen cabinet to try to keep them away from FBI special agents.

Brown faces three separate indictments that include accusations of making threats to a federal agent and posting a link to stolen information.

His case has gotten widespread attention among groups who believe he's being unfairly prosecuted.
