Short Take: Mitnick sentencing delayed again

A sentencing hearing for Kevin Mitnick, the computer hacker whose exploits made international headlines four years ago, has been postponed again. A federal judge in Los Angeles was expected to rule today on a plea agreement reached last March in which Mitnick would receive 46 months in jail in addition to a 22-month sentence he received earlier. If approved, the deal could let Mitnick out of jail early next year.
