The San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office has announced that it is filing misdemeanor charges against two individuals involved in the sale of an iPhone 4 prototype during the spring of 2010. According to the DA’s official statement, which has been posted online by Gizmodo—which was also involved in the incident—Brian Hogan of Redwood City has been charged with one count of misappropriation of lost property, while Sage Wallower of Emeryville was charged with misappropriation of lost property and possession of stolen property. The two young men are set to be arraigned on August 25. In regards to Gizmodo, the statement reads, “after a consideration of all of the evidence, it was determined that no charges would be filed against employees of Gizmodo.” Gizmodo purchased the prototype after it was found in a Redwood City establishment and subsequently posted photos of the unit online.
