Notorious ‘Anonymous’ Hacker Apprehended in Mexico, Deported to the U.S.

Notorious ‘Anonymous’ Hacker Apprehended in Mexico, Deported to the U.S.

Among those arrested was Christopher Doyon, then a 45-year-old vagabond, according to local press reports. Doyon — who goes by the online moniker “Commander X” — also happened to be a member of the hacking group, Anonymous, and three months after the protest, someone knocked out Santa Cruz County’s website, according to a 2011 federal indictment unsealed Monday.

A group of homeless men and women in California were protesting the city of Santa Cruz’s decades-old prohibition against overnight encampments in August 2010 when police officers attempted to disband the rally by detaining the protesters.

It took more than a decade for the U.S. to get Doyon into custody. He was deported from Mexico on June 11, according to the Department of Justice. He’ll face charges for both the cyberattack against Santa Cruz County and for ducking those federal charges back in 2011, the Justice Department said in a statement after Doyon appeared before a federal judge in San Jose.

Although Doyon escaped U.S. law enforcement for the last 10 years, he didn’t shy away from telling his story. In a documentary produced by the Canadian public television channel TVO called, “The Face of Anonymous” Doyon is seen waving a copy of the indictment. In an interview he did with TVO prior to the airing of the documentary, he claims to be the first American to win political asylum in Mexico, while admonishing the U.S. for its social and political inequality.
