NEW YORK – Reuters deputy social media editor Matthew Keys will face charges next month after being indicted Thursday for alleged conspiring with members of the hacking group “Anonymous” to infiltrate a Tribune site shortly after he was fired.

Keys, 26, who once worked at Fox 40 in Sacramento, was charged with three hacking-related counts and faces up to 10 years in prison for the December 2010 attack.

The hack appeared on a news story on the website of the Los Angeles Times, which is also owned by Tribune.
