Little whore was having an affair and got caught. I think he was justified in trying to find out what was going on...

It's an interesting case. She was trying to keep the emails private. He did "hack" into her account to view them.

Would have to see the statute they were prosecuting under to make an informed decision.

forget the statues. Is it justified to charge a man with hacking because he got access to his wife's email to discover if she was having an affair?

Right. And when she spend all day picking the lock on his locked drawer, that was a case of burglary.

Do prosecutors simply not exercise judgement any more?

I think we need to know what kind of email it was. If it resides on the computer then the case is crap, if it's a Yahoo email account that's another matter.

It's obvious you've never been divorced. I can tell you some horror stories.
