He was a millionaire by 18, took extravagant trips to Las Vegas, owned homes in the Northwest and -- at his peak --- had seven luxury cars filling his driveway.

Now, he faces a jail term of nearly four years and must repay $700,000. He is Robert Soloway and he has been dubbed the "King of Spam" (aren't they all?) He knew what he was doing was filling people's email with unwanted messages, but his response was, "Delete it!".
