Brian Hogan–the 21-year-old who found an iPhone prototype and sold it to Gizmodo–regrets his actions, reports Wired. Yes, he did not try very hard to find the phone’s owner, and yes, he accepted money for it: but these are mistakes that any one of us might make.
Also, Hogan is an OK guy:
He has been working part time at a church-run community center giving swimming lessons to children and volunteered at a Chinese orphanage last year while he was enrolled in a study-abroad program.
“He also volunteers to assist his aunt and sister with fundraising for their work to provide medical care to orphans in Kenya,” his attorney says. “Brian is the kind of young man that any parent would be proud to have as their son.”
