Gizmodo iPhone 4 Case Finally Coming to an End

A year and a half after the case "Gizmodo and iPhone lost 4", comes a decision that exonerates gizomodo, not guilty, therefore, the crime of embezzlement. The case is closed, at least for the well-known portal.

Here are the facts. A year and a half ago had been filed a complaint for the crime of misappropriation of a prototype of the iPhone 4, lost by an Apple employee and later recovered in a factory in Redwood City by the defendants March 25, 2010. Brian Hogan, 22, of Redwood City has been accused of misappropriation of lost property, and similarly, Wallower Sage, 28, of Emeryville, has been accused of misappropriation of lost property, and possession of stolen property. The first hearing will be held on August 25, 2011, 9:00.

Finally, after an examination of all the evidence, it was determined that no charges can be leveled against employees of Gizmodo.

Here are the direct words of Gizmodo after the decision:

We are pleased that the District Attorney of San Mateo County, Wagstaffe Steven, decided, after careful review of all evidence, that no crime was committed by the team of Gizmodo in relation to reporting on the prototype of the iPhone last 4 years. While we have always believed to act fully within the law, is inevitably stressful for the publisher, Jason Chen, and we are pleased to finally put this issue behind
