Buffalo Bills wiretap scandal comes with charges

Back before the draft, a recorded call came through to deadspin and was published.  The recorded call was of Buddy Nix, former GM of the Buffalo Bills and Bucs GM Mark Dominik.

Two youths placed a prank call to Buddy Nix and were able to get through to his assistant.  They left their name as that of Bucs GM Mark Dominik.  When their phone began ringing, it was Nix returning ‘Dominik’s’ call.  After a couple of tried by Nix, the youths decided to try and leave a message for Dominik.  As they were calling Dominik, Nix was calling through.  They decided to work a conference call and let the two talk it out.  What Nix and Dominik didn’t know is that the youths recorded the call and later sent it in to deadspin, who later replayed the recorded call.

The two youths, Joshua Barber, 20 and Nicholas Kaiser, 20, of Plymouth, Massachusetts are now being charged, which was known to be coming.  The charges the youths face are federal charges of

“intentionally intercepting a wire communication and with making a telephone call without disclosing their identity with the intent to annoy or harass the person at the called number.”

This information is coming from WGRZ-TV.

It will be interesting to see what type of punishment they will set as a precedent for this.  Will it be only probation, a fine, a combination of both, or worst case scenario – Jail Time.
