Press Release Summary: A Woburn, Massachusetts man was ordered to stay away from the
Church of Scientology of Boston for one year after admitting he disrupted religious
services there in February 2008.

Press Release Body: In the Boston Municipal Court, Gregg Housh, 32, admitted to
facts sufficient to warrant a finding of guilt on charges of disturbing the peace
and disturbing religious services for leading a February 10, 2008 disturbance at the
Boston Church of Scientology. Housh's case was continued for one year, the terms of
which include a court order to stay away from the Church of Scientology of Boston's
locations in the Back Bay and the South End.

Housh is the self-proclaimed leader of the Boston cell of an underground
cyber-terrorist group called Anonymous. He is the second member of Anonymous to
face criminal charges in the past week for acts committed against a Scientology
Church. On Friday October 17th, The U.S. Department of Justice announced the filing
of federal criminal charges against New Jersey Anonymous member Dmitriy Guzner
related to the January, 2008 attempted destruction of websites owned by the Church
of Scientology. Guzner has agreed to plead guilty to felony charges that could send
him to prison for ten years.

At the October 21 hearing, Boston Municipal Court Judge Thomas C. Horgan warned
Housh that if he violates any of the terms of his probation he could face one year
in the House of Correction.
