Jury convicts on 2 charges in Palin e-mail hacking

• AP
The son of a Democratic Tennessee lawmaker was convicted Friday on two charges in the hacking of Sarah Palin's e-mail account while she campaigned on the Republican presidential ticket in 2008.

The federal court jury reached its verdict against David Kernell, 22, after four days of deliberation. He was found guilty of obstruction of justice and unauthorized access to a computer, but was acquitted on a charge of wire fraud.

My favorite comment from the linked document: "These young men may get 40 years in prison. The sentence would have been less if they had actually murdered Palin!"
