The mother of hacking suspect Ryan Clearly who was arrested in Essex has spoken of her shock at her sons arrest, revealing that when she asked why her son was spending so much time on the PC he told her “he was playing computer games”.
The 19 Year Old was officially charged yesterday with 5 offenses including an attack on the Serious Organized Crime Agency’s website, he was arrested earlier this week and is widely believed to be one of the masterminds behind the group Lulzsec despite them attempting to distance themselves from him.
His mother Rita told the Daily Mirror,
“Ryan lives his life online… I thought he was playing computer games
in his room. I can’t believe it. He rarely left the house.”
“I asked him what he was doing and he said he was playing games. Maybe I was naive to believe him.”
His brother Mitchell added;
“It’s shocking. I have not got a clue what’s happening. He’s not the sort to do anything mad.”
“He stays in his room, you’ll be lucky if he opens the blinds. I think someone has a grudge against him.”
