PHILADELPHIA -- A Philadelphia fanatic is heading to federal prison.
It took a jury less than two hours on Thursday to convict Allan Carlson, 41, of sending out thousands of e-mails blasting the management of the Philadelphia Phillies.
He had listed sportswriters and team officials as the senders, so spam that bounced back went to them. As a result, people he named had their computers clogged with thousands of messages.
A federal prosecutor says reporters weren't able to find their real e-mails in all the garbage.
Carlson, who's been living with his parents in New Jersey, could get up to 41 months in federal prison.
