umm normally they go to prison depending on what level of hacking they have done determins the years they spend in prison. I also believe they probably have to pay for the damages they inflicted, they prolly would also get sued aswell. Plus you'd prolly get "invasion of privacy" and get thrown in jail like i said above. not a good idea ^_^

A good hacker usually receives a few years in prison, but once they get out, they get hired by a major company and earn lots of money.

Yep, it's called "hire the hacker"
