(via Slashdot) Two spammers were convicted under a Virginia law for spamming.

Jurors who convicted Jeremy D. Jaynes, 30, and Jessica DeGroot, 28, later sentenced Jaynes to a nine-year prison term and fined DeGroot $7,500 for three convictions each of sending e-mails with fraudulent and untraceable routing information.
It's refreshing to hear that a spammer has finally received jail time.
