David Kernell Guilty on Felony Count in Palin E-mail Hacker Case

A Tennessee jury found David Kernell guilty of obstruction of justice. That makes Kernell a felon. The maximum for this charge is 20 years, with a fine of up to $250,000. Now we wait for the judge to rule on the penalty.

Twenty years is obviously overkill. I seriously doubt that Kernell will get anything remotely approaching 20 years, more likely he'll get community service and parole. I mean his dad is a State Rep.

Kernell was also found guilty of unauthorized access to Palin's computer, a misdemeanor with a penalty of 1 year, maximum.
