WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita lawyer and a computer software engineer have been charged in a federal indictment alleging they plotted cyberattacks on websites with information criticizing the attorney’s work.

U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister told The Wichita Eagle that Wichita lawyer Bradley Pistotnik, 62, and VIRAL Artificial Intelligence Co-Founder David Dorsett, 36, were charged Tuesday with computer fraud and conspiracy. Pistotnik, who’s locally known for his commercials in which he rides a bull while advertising that he’s an accident attorney, is also charged with making false statements to the FBI.

The indictment alleges that Pistotnik and Dorsett are responsible for cyberattacks on Leagle.com , Ripoffreport.com and JaburgWilk.com in 2014 and 2015. The indictment also accuses Dorsett of filling website inboxes with threats.
