Lamo set to surrender today

Tuesday, 9 September 2003, 2:51 PM EST

Hacker Adrian Lamo has agreed to walk into a federal courthouse in Sacramento, California, Tuesday morning and turn himself in to law enforcement officials, Lamo and his attorney said Monday.

In exchange, the government will release him on bail within hours, and allow him to transport himself to New York to face charges stemming from his penetration of the New York Times last year, said deputy federal public defender Mary French.

"I have an investigator who's going to be with him, and I think he'll physically be there at the courthouse at 9:00 a.m.," French said.

If all goes according to plan, Lamo will be taken into custody and booked, then make an appearance before a magistrate judge at 2:00 p.m., when he'll be released on a signature bond. His parents have also agreed to put up their house to guarantee his appearance, said French.
