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.
The case in point involved two kids aged 13 and 14 who threatened another kid at knife-point and forced him to transfer his digital assets to their account. They were found guilty and sentenced to 360 hrs. community service.

Just desserts IMHO
