SCIENTOLOGY PROTESTER’S CASE CONTINUED WITHOUT FINDING

Oct. 22, 2008 

 

A Boston Municipal Court judge today continued for one year the case against a Woburn man alleged to have disturbed proceedings at the Back Bay Church of Scientology earlier this year, and will dismiss the case if the defendant abides by certain conditions during that time. 

Judge Thomas C. Horgan imposed a one-year continuance without a finding in the case against GREGG HOUSH (D.O.B. 10/17/76), who had been charged with disturbing an assembly of worship and disturbing the peace. 

If Housh stays away from the Back Bay headquarters of the Church of Scientology and its expected new headquarters in Boston’s South End, and if he does not re-offend in any other manner, those charges will be dismissed. If he does not abide by those terms, Housh’s case could be put back on track for trial. 

Also in today’s proceedings, Suffolk prosecutors affirmatively moved to dismiss an additional charge of criminal harassment against Housh. After a review of the evidence, prosecutors determined they could not meet their burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt on this charge and could not in good faith move forward with it. 

Had the case gone to trial, prosecutors would have introduced evidence and testimony to show that Housh and others entered the Church of Scientology’s Beacon Street building in a boisterous manner during a March 1 protest, disturbing the proceedings and alarming those inside. 

Attorney Michael Dlott represented Housh.

NJ teen charged with hacking Scientology Web sites

NJ teen charged with hacking Scientology Web sites

Seems like the San Jose Mercury News has discovered too that a New Jersey man named Dmitriy Guzner was involved in DDoS’ing the Church of Scientology’s servers back in January. 

The article states: “The U.S. attorney’s office said Friday that Dmitriy Guzner claims to be a member of an Internet-based group called “Anonymous,” which leads protests against the Church of Scientology for allegedly trying to silence its critics through lawsuits.”  

I don’t know how many cyber-terrorists attend protests, and I don’t know if Guzner was one of them, but this is quite likely.  One person who seems to know the ways of Anonymous said: “Anonymous is a group of mostly college-type kids who are involved in cyber crimes, online pornography and have an anarchistic view towards religion.”

The Church of Scientology initially responded to Anonymous months ago by distributing a documentary exposing the crimes of Anonymous. Looks like now some of them are now getting caught.

Anti-Scientology group “Anonymous” not so anonymous anymore

Anti-Scientology group “Anonymous” not so anonymous anymore

The Los Angeles Times has now decided that Anonymous is not so anonymous anymore.  Surely Dmitriy Guzner isn’t anonymous anymore.

The LA Times wrote: “Scientology had replied with a video of its own.”  I am not sure which video they are speaking of.  Perhaps this one?:

Or maybe this one?:

Anonymous Criminally Charged with Attacking Scientology Websites

 

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California issued a press release on October 17, 2008 concerning the matter.  Here is what they wrote:

NEW JERSEY MAN CHARGED WITH ATTACKING CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY WEBSITES IN THE NAME OF ‘ANONYMOUS’

LOS ANGELES – A New Jersey man was charged today for his role in an attack on Church of Scientology websites in January 2008 that rendered the websites unavailable.

Dmitriy Guzner, 18, of Verona, New Jersey, has agreed to plead guilty to computer hacking for his role in the distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack against the Scientology websites. A DDOS attack occurs where a large amount of malicious Internet traffic is directed at a website or a set of websites. The target websites are unable to handle the high volume of Internet traffic and therefore become unavailable to legitimate users trying to reach the sites.

According to the criminal information filed in United States District Court in Los Angeles, Guzner participated in the attack because he considered himself a member of an underground group called “Anonymous.”  “Anonymous” has led protests against the Church of Scientology at various locations across the country, and in January 2008 posted a video on YouTube which announced a new offensive against Scientology.

Once he pleads guilty, which is expected to take place in the coming weeks in federal court in New Jersey, Guzner faces up to 10 years in federal prison.

This case was investigated by the United States Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force in Los Angeles. The agencies involved in the investigation were the United States Secret Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation.
