Jeez he's just a 14 year old kid. I agree that what he did was wrong but people here are suggesting the death penalty? That I cannot agree on. I think his sentence should be less harsh than what the majority of users are posting here. Plus the Japanese school system/society is more intense and strict than most other countries' school systems. Not saying the kid should get off without a penalty but a week of jail should suffice. At that age being put in jail too long will destroy any prospects he has to become a positive member of society.

I get what you are saying, but at the same time, when ransomware hits a hospital it can be life threatening. Not only ransomware hitting hospitals, but if its not out already, malicious software that can stop things like pacemakers. IMO A week seems not enough. At least a month or two. Thanks for your input. :)

That is not his fault .. today,s system turned him to make easier money within a few days/hours. Probably he learnt from WannaCry hackers how to destroy other and can improve own status.
