A City of San Francisco administrator who refused to hand over 
administrative passwords to the city's network was sentenced to four 
years in state prison Friday.

Terry Childs was convicted in April of violating California's hacking 
laws after he refused to hand over administrative control to the city's 
FiberWAN network in July 2008.

He was sentenced Friday by Judge Teri Jackson, according to Erica 
Derryck, a spokeswoman for the San Francisco district attorney's office.

Although the city's network continued to run during the 12 days that 
Childs refused to hand over control, jurors found that by denying the 
city the administrative control to its own network, he had violated 
state law.
