Prosecutors accused him of leaking the album online on his blog, months before Axl Rose's long-delayed opus arrived on store shelves. A document shows they agreed to recommend probation in exchange for the plea deal. Cogill admitted he leaked nine of the 14 songs that appeared on the album, but has not publicly stated how he received the tracks. His plea agreement requires him to cooperate with investigators.According to his plea deal, Cogill could be sentenced to a year in federal prison, probation and a hefty fine. http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D9...;show_article=1Related forum discussion:http://www.mygnrforum.com/index.php?showtopic=133537 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
