This kid lived with his parents and they didn't notice a $60K surge in his income? The only reasons he even got caught were carelessness and greed.

I have heard talk of pending legislation that makes it the user's responsibility to secure their computers and networks or face charges, even if they are ignorant of the adware/spyware the computer is infected with. If your computer is a zombie, you can go to jail. Think about Grandma going to jail when all she wanted to do was get email and look up recipes? I say send the kid who wrote the stuff and sold it, not Gram.
