Two of Aaron Swartz's attorneys, one current and one former, say that the Government wanted Aaron Swartz to plead guilty to all 13 counts in the Superseding Indictment, and it would recommend a sentence of six months in confinement.
Aaron's first attorney, Andrew Good, also says he told the Government Aaron was a suicide risk.
[Good]said he told federal prosecutors in Massachusetts that Swartz was a suicide risk. “Their response was, put him in jail, he’ll be safe there,” Good said.
