DNC's Palin Hacker GUILTY

"...David Kernell, son of Memphis state Representative Mike Kernell, has been convicted by a federal jury in Knoxville of one felony and one misdemeanor in connection with the 2008 hacking of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's email account.

The jury found the 22-year-old Kernell guilty of felony destruction of records to hamper a federal investigation and of a misdemeanor, unlawfully obtaining information from a protected computer. It acquitted Kernell of wire fraud and could not reach a verdict on felony identity theft..." (source)

Of course it's no surprise the prosecution tried to pass this off as a "college prank." This is the son of a DNC State Representative. Imagine this kids...imagine Bristol Palin or Meaghan McCain had hacked into Obama or Biden's emails. College prank or federal crime? Sentencing has yet to be set, but I really hope this little punk gets jail time...
