Trial Delayed for Anonymous "Spokesman"

AP

A Dallas man once affiliated with the global hacking collective Anonymous is now scheduled for trial in September after a judge granted his request for a delay.

Barrett Lancaster Brown faces three federal indictments against him. The first came after he posted tweets and YouTube videos that ripped opponents and lashed out at law enforcement. The charges against him now include aggravated identity theft and concealing evidence.

Brown's attorney Doug Morris asked for more time to evaluate the evidence against his client, and U.S. District Judge Sam Lindsay granted his requests.

Brown's trial on one indictment is Sept. 3, while trials are set for Sept. 23 on the second and third indictments.

Brown once served as de facto spokesman for Anonymous, a shadowy movement that has gotten attention for cyber-attacks.
