Palin: Hacked e-mail account caused hurt, disruption

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Sarah Palin testified Friday about the disruption and hurt caused when her e-mail account was hacked during the 2008 presidential campaign and said outside court that there should be consequences for what happened.

She declined to say whether she thinks conviction of the defendant, 22, should lead to prison or if community service would be punishment enough.

David Kernell, son of a Democratic state lawmaker, is charged with hacking the Yahoo account. He faces up to 50 years in federal prison if convicted of identity theft, mail fraud and two other felony charges. His lawyer has said it was a prank and Kernell had no criminal intent. - AP
