Pleas must be entered at the next court date for a Victorian man accused by the Federal Police's cybercrime operations of computer hacking.
Abe Henry Crannaford of Noorinbee did not appear in Bega Local Court on Tuesday, but the alleged hacker was represented by defence lawyer Ines Chiumento.
First appearing before the courts last November, the 24-year-old is facing four charges of unauthorised access or modification of restricted data.
At Tuesday's hearing, February 11, police prosecutor Sergeant Liza Brown requested a short adjournment, to which Magistrate Doug Dick agreed - with a stipulation.
"There will be no further adjournments," he said
"A plea must be entered."
The matter was adjourned to February 19 for further negotiations and for pleas to be entered, he said.
