iPhone Finder Regrets His ‘Mistake’ | Threat Level | Wired.com

Brian X. Chen and Kim Zetter did some investigative journalism and found the iPhone finder, who has a defense attorney doing his talking for him:

He has been working part time at a church-run community center giving swimming lessons to children and volunteered at a Chinese orphanage last year while he was enrolled in a study-abroad program.

“He also volunteers to assist his aunt and sister with fundraising for their work to provide medical care to orphans in Kenya,” his attorney says. “Brian is the kind of young man that any parent would be proud to have as their son.”
