iPhone 4 prototype sellers under fire

Remember the whole iPhone 4 incident that happened over a year ago? When a prototype iPhone 4 was found in a bar and sold to Gizmodo, which then did an exclusive feature on the device and leaked it to the world? Well, according to the latest reports, it turns out that all charges against Gizmodo have been dropped. What about the men who found the iPhone 4 prototype at the bar? They aren’t so lucky after all.

The Santa Clara County district attorney’s office is pressing charges against the two men who found the phone in a bar and sold it to Gizmodo. The men in question, Brian Hogan and Sage Robert Wallower, face charges of misappropriation of lost property and possession of stolen property and they have an arraignment scheduled on August 25th. I guess it’s not such a good idea to sell stolen iPhones anymore. I wonder how much these guys will be fined for their crimes… do you think the iPhone 5 will be leaked prematurely again this time around?
