Wired reports that Hector Xavier Monsegur, a.k.a. Sabu, the LulzSec hacker who became an FBI informant and helped take down numerous other hackers, will be sentenced on Tuesday, May 27th. The government will seek a sentence of just seven months, citing time served and his immense cooperation with the government.

Sabu's sentencing has been delayed for nearly three years, during which the government says he was " an extremely valuable and productive cooperator," according to a court document filed on Friday and obtained by Wired.
