These ransomware gang members have to be among the lowest dregs of society. The judge even gave a longer sentence than the prosecution was asking for. Good for him. The CBC article notes that he had a proper upbringing, education, and no financial pressures. There was no reason for him to turn to this other being an all-around horrible person.
