Jeremy Hammond sat in New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center last 
week in a small room reserved for visits from attorneys. He was wearing 
an oversized prison jumpsuit. The brown hair of the lanky 6-footer fell 
over his ears, and he had a wispy beard. He spoke with the intensity and 
clarity one would expect from one of the nation’s most important 
political prisoners.

On Friday the 28-year-old activist will appear for sentencing in the 
Southern District Court of New York in Manhattan. After having made a 
plea agreement, he faces the possibility of a 10-year sentence for 
hacking into the Texas-based private security firm Strategic Forecasting 
Inc., or Stratfor, which does work for the Homeland Security Department, 
the Marine Corps, the Defense Intelligence Agency and numerous 
corporations including Dow Chemical and Raytheon.
