A sentencing hearing was delayed Monday until Aug. 22 for an Oceanside man who staged repeated attacks on a computer system operated by his former employer, a manufacturer of precision laser and mechanical drilling equipment.

Prosecutors are recommending that Conrad Pearson be sentenced to 18 months in federal prison and ordered to pay restitution of somewhere between $15,000 and $40,000, according to documents filed last week in Los Angeles federal court.

Pearson, 64, pleaded guilty in March to one count of unauthorized damage to a protected computer.

Pearson admitted that soon after he stopped working for Excellon Automation, he began transmitting “attack scripts” to the Rancho Dominguez company’s website.
