WILMINGTON, Delaware: A 27-year-old businessman dubbed the "Spam King" pleaded not guilty to charges that he used a network of computers to send millions of unsolicited junk e-mails.
Robert Alan Soloway entered his plea in U.S. District Court in Seattle. The 35-count indictment charges him with e-mail fraud, aggravated identity theft and money laundering, Emily Langlie, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney in Seattle, Jeffrey Sullivan, said in a telephone interview.
If convicted, Soloway faces more than 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, according to the indictment.

He may not be guilty... I hope that they have the evidence they need. But I can tell you this: my spam dropped from 100 per hour to 265 for a 12 hour period. That is substantial. So, yeah - he may not be the guy, but this would be an amazing coincidence. I wish they would bring back public hangings for this kind of thing.
