Hacking Gets Husband A Felony Charge
A Computer Technican from Michigan may be facing jail time for hacking into his ex-wife's email account.
Leon Walker will go before a jury in February. He says his then ex-wife gave him her password at some point and time, but he would later hack into her account and discover she was having an affair with her second husband. When Walker found out about the relationship, he took the e-mails to court because he wanted custody of their daughter. Walker says that he feared for his daugther's well being because his ex-wife's second husband has a history of domestic abuse. Still, when his ex-wife found out how the e-mails made it into court, she complained to police.
Oakland County, Michigan, Prosecutor Jessica Cooper used a state anti-hacking law to charge Leon Walker with a felony.
