Palin E-mail Hacker Sentenced To A Year And A Day

Remember that college student who hacked Sarah Palin’s Yahoo e-mail account and leaked the contents to the universe? He was also found to be the son of a Democrat which caused some embarrassment. He’s been found guilty and sentenced to 366 days in custody. Oh, there’s more than just the sentence than being in custody:

Federal Judge Thomas W. Phillips also said David Kernell, who was a 20-year-old economics major at the University of Tennessee when he deduced the answers to security questions and read emails in Palin’s private account, should get mental-health treatment.

Kernell apologized in court Friday to the former Republican vice-presidential candidate and her family.

I’m not sure how getting mental health treatment works into this, but this puts an end to this saga. Now we will have to get our fix of Palin on Fox News.
