Sarah Palin Coming to Knoxville for E-mail Hacker Trial

Sarah Palin is coming to Knoxville, Tennessee to testify in the infamous Yahoo E-mail Hacker case. The case of the college student hacking into Sarah Palin's Yahoo account (2 months before the election) goes to trial this week.

The alleged perpetrator is then student David Kernell, son of Democratic Tennessee State Rep. Mike Kernell of Memphis. Palin wrote about the incident in her book, calling it: "'the most disruptive and discouraging' incident in the campaign . . it 'created paralysis' in her state office."

David Kernell is 22 years old:

David Kernell has put college on hold to deal with the charges against him. He has pleaded not guilty to all four counts: identity theft, wire fraud, unauthorized access to a protected computer in furtherance of aiding and abetting the same offense, and obstruction of justice.
