Man charged with hacking estranged wife's e-mail

Man charged with hacking estranged wife's e-mail

A Michigan prosecutor has filed charges against a man accused of hacking his estranged wife's email, saying the man broke state privacy laws.
Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper said Wednesday that charging Leon Walker with felony computer misuse has nothing to do with the couple's marital problems. She says he simply broke the law.
Cooper says Walker's estranged wife, Clara, realized her computer had been hacked when personal e-mails showed up in child custody pleadings involving her first husband. Cooper says the Walkers were going through a divorce when Clara Walker filed the complaint last March.
Leon Walker has said he was suspicions about his wife being unfaithful. He did not return phone messages Wednesday.
He's fighting the felony charge. His trial is scheduled Feb. 7.
