State / Regional

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – A Tampa judge suspended a virtual bond hearing for alleged Twitter hacker Graham Clark after it was interrupted by loud music and pornographic images.

Attorneys for Clark had filed a motion to lower his $750,000 bond to an amount more financially feasible for their client.

While making the motion, his attorney was interrupted by a number of “Zoombombers” posing as CNN and BBC staff who played loud music. Attendees also saw pornographic images.

The meeting resumed about ten minutes later, then it was interrupted again by loud music.

Clark, 17, is facing 30 charges of electronic and computer fraud for the July 15 intrusion into data of multiple prominent Twitter users, including Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Kim Kardashian.

Prosecutors say Clark hacked multiple celebrity and company Twitter accounts, which he used to get people around the world to send him money in cryptocurrency. He is said to have routed the money to himself, making more than $100,000 within a matter of hours.

On Tuesday, he pleaded not guilty to charges related to the scheme.
