I certainly find it odd that the judge convicted on the crime of theft. Without knowing more about the Dutch legal system and this case in particular, I can only speculate.

Perhaps it was because it involved computers and the judge wished to make an example, while not establishing a possible loophole for more serious crimes.

Or perhaps the prosecuting attorney was frustrated that a better case for harassment or assault couldn't be made so he went with the evidence he could present.
