    Matthew Schuster began work as a computer technician for Alpha Computer Services in Wausau, Wisc., in 2000. Schuster provided technical support for a wireless Internet system called CWWIS and also was a paying subscriber to CWWIS for his home.

    Schuster was fired in May 2003. His home CWWIS account was terminated and the balance of his monthly payment refunded. But he continued to use CWWIS by using "access information" belonging to Alpha customers such as the Central Wisconsin Convention and Visitors Bureau--and, according to the FBI, he intentionally disrupted CWWIS as well.
