Man faces 5-yr jail for hacking wife`s emails
New York: A 33-year-old man is facing up to five years in jail in the US for allegedly hacking his wife`s e-mails, after he suspected her of cheating on him, a media report said.
Leon Walker has been charged by prosecutors in Oakland county, Michigan, under the state`s anti-hacking laws aimed at preventing identity theft in the US, for allegedly reading her wife Clara`s e-mails without her prior permission, The Daily Telegraph online reported.
Leon had suspected his wife, who had been married twice before, was having an affair with her ex-husband. He is alleged to have used his computer skills to gain access to her e-mail account on their shared home computer and discovered e-mails which confirmed his suspicions that his wife was cheating on him.
Leon handed the e-mails over to the son of Clara`s first husband who was forced into revealing the source of the leaked e-mails. When his wife realised her e-mails were read, she lodged a complaint with authorities. Clara later divorced him earlier this month, when he was arrested for hacking.
