Guilty verdict in Palin email case


In Knoxville, a jury has found a 22-year-old guilty in the reported theft of Sarah Palin's email. David C. Kernell was found guilty of "felony destruction of records to hamper a federal investigation and misdemeanor unlawfully obtaining information from a protected computer," the News Sentinel reports. He was acquitted of felony wire fraud, and a mistrial was declared on the fourth charge because the jury deadlocked. From Palin's lawyer:

“I think the jury took its job very seriously and weighed the evidence closely and concluded that any effort to impact a national election through illegal means is not a college prank. It is a crime,” he said.
