Wired identifies the Redwood City resident who left a bar with Apple’s secret prototype
Before moving to Silicon Valley, he lived in Santa Barbara, Calif., where he attended Santa Barbara City College. He has been working part time at a church-run community center giving swimming lessons to children, according to his attorney, Jeffrey Bornstein.
Brian X. Chen and Kim Zetter, the Wired reporters who broke the story, have apparently got their hands on a statement written by Bornstein. His account, which tends to put his client in the best possible light, nonetheless adds some new details to what was already known. Chen and Zetter write:
Whether this version of the story — which jibes with what Gizmodo has been saying — is enough to make the charge of theft go away remains to be seen.
