Geohot has no need and no use for "running away" to South America, because as it stands, I don't think he has ever physically appeared in court anyway. His lawyers represent him completely, and the rest is done over e-mail and phone. He would have no benefit for running away. XD
Also, you guys are making unfair excuses in favor of him in the case of this psn account. The judge will never let it fly if they can show evidence of the account being made on his console after he purchased it. He isn't a fool, that's been made clear. He isn't interested in letting them play legal semantics games with him. However, it wouldn't be perjury, it isn't even a criminal case. Worst case scenario is that if they can get something close to accusing perjury then Geo will have submitted his case.
