Virginia spammer gets nine year prison term overturned: Convicted spammer Jeremy Jaynes, 34, nabbed a "Get Out of Jail Free Card" in September, when a US high court ruled that the anti-spam law violated the First Amendment right to free speech. Jaynes was one of the first spammers to wind up behind bars. He was sentenced to nine years in prison in 2005 for sending unsolicited e-mail to tens of thousands of AOL subscribers. Jaynes made US$24 million from his spamming operation, according to prosecutors who have vowed to appeal the latest ruling to the US Supreme Court.
