Adrian Lamo who gained the reputation of the homeless hacker because of his lifestyle hacked into the internal computer network of the New York Times. He was 23 at the time. From there he accessed and modified confidential databases, and used the paper's LexisNexis account to conduct research.

For that he was sentenced to six months of home confinement, and has to pay $18,500 to cover the cost of the LexisNexis searches.

On top of that during his probation he will have restricted access to computers and will be assisted by probation officers. He is allowed to leave home to go to school on the condition that he wears a monitoring bracelet.

By home confinement they're making him live with his parents. His not actually homeless, it's just a reputation he developed amongst friends.
