What Happens Next
* The FBI is moving forward with its investigation into Kernell, but is releasing few specifics about what actions its agents are taking.

* A grand jury could reconvene at any time and potentially file formal charges. An attorney told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that grand juries could "pursue investigations for many sessions," so Tuesday's meeting may be only the first.

* If the case does end up going to trial, the government's challenge will be proving who was actually at the computer during the hacking. Having seized equipment would make that easier, he indicates. (Whether agents seized anything during their visit to Kernell's apartment is not clear, though witness reports indicate that they primarily photographed evidence.)
