Super Bowl Porn Hacker Frank Gonzalez Pleads Guilty to Computer Tampering

Frank Tanori Gonzalez, the Marana man who gave thousands of viewers of the 2009 Super Bowl a 37-second dose of porn, pleaded guilty in Pima County Superior Court this morning to two counts of computer tampering, the Arizona Attorney General's Office confirms to New Times.

Gonzalez, who was working for Cox Communications at the time of the Super Bowl porn incident, must pay a $1,000 fine and be placed on probation for three years, according to the terms of his plea agreement.

If Gonzalez completes his probation, the crimes will be designated as misdemeanors rather than felonies.

When Gonzalez was working for Cox, the company was a liaison for Comcast. State prosecutors say, on two separate occasions, Gonzalez hacked into Comcast's computer system. During one of the hacking incidents, following a Larry Fitzgerald touchdown during the Arizona Cardinals' loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2009 Super Bowl, Gonzalez broadcasted a 37-second clip of "Wild Cherries 5" to thousands of viewers in the Tucson area.

As a result of the brief porn viewing, Comcast offered all of its 80,000 customers a $10 credit, regardless of whether they saw the porn.

Gonzalez will be sentenced by Pima County Superior Court Judge Clark Munger on December 1.
