    A Democratic state representative's son has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Tennessee for intentionally hacking into Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's personal e-mail account.

    David C. Kernell, 20, was charged with one count of breaking into the Republican vice presidential nominee's personal Yahoo e-mail account. Kernell, an economics student at the University of Tennessee, is the son of state Rep. Michael Kernell of Memphis.

    According to the Justice Department, Kernell turned himself in to authorities.

    He plead not guilty in federal court in Knoxville, Tenn., on Wednesday.

    He was released without posting bond, but the court imposed several conditions. Kernell is not allowed to own a computer and can only use the Internet to check e-mail and do class work.

    What's the maximum penalty for a crime such as this?

    Up to five years per count. This kid will probably get probation. The crime wasn't malicious in nature. I bet this kid will never see the inside of a prison.

    What an odd thing to be charged with...is one count of breaking into the Republican vice presidential nominee's personal Yahoo e-mail account actually listed as a crime?

    lol would it be a crime if it were the Democratic VP nominee? What a hack you are. Speaking of hacking, yes, I think that is a crime.

    As far as I can see, he wasn't charged with hacking. Do you know what he was charged with? Perhaps you do not care.

    Prolly just more sloppy journalism, really.

    Like I've stated before, I think the kid should pay for his crime. I'm just curious to know what his crime is, exactly.
