Not sounding good for the hacker...
CHATTANOOGA — The man charged with hacking Sarah Palin’s e-mail has been dealt another pre-trial setback with a federal magistrate in Knoxville refusing to dismiss search warrants for Internet provider records.
U.S. Magistrate Clifford Shirley Jr. in a decision today denied the motion filed on behalf of David C. Kernell.
Defense attorney Wade Davies and the chief prosecutor in the case, Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Weddle, could not be reached for comment Friday.
The 22-year-old Kernell was accused while a University of Tennessee student of getting access to the former Alaska governor’s personal Yahoo e-mail account when she was John McCain’s running mate in 2008.
Kernell’s trial is set April 20 in Knoxville.
Davies contended the magistrate overstepped his authority.Link
