Work at home mother pleads guilty to pornographic spam crimes
Jennifer Clason, of Raymond, New Hampshire, was charged following more than 600,000 complaints from AOL users that they had received spam messages promoting adult pornographic websites. Clason pleaded guilty at a federal court in Phoenix, Arizona, to two counts under the CAN-SPAM Act, and one count of criminal conspiracy. She has agreed to forfeit money obtained in the commission of the crimes, and faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison for each of the offenses.
Brian McWilliams, a commentator on the spam industry, discovered that Jennifer Clason also runs a website, mommyjobs.com, which claims to help mothers find a way of giving up office jobs, and receive income while staying at home with their children. In articles published by Clason she says she has "been running a full-time home-based internet business for 7+ years and owns more than 10 different internet sales websites."
