    I couldn't understand if it was the wife who started this legal action against him? At the link you provide, this is mentioned

    They also make mention to

    Does this mean she was the one who started this legal process? I ask, because I wonder if some "enterprising justice-seeking prosecutors" would do it on their own behalf?
    (They had to discover this, somehow. It makes sense for the wife to have started it.)

    Anyway, this for sure will teach a lesson to the fourth husband... :D

    "It so happens, the paper said, that having gleaned her password from a book his wife kept next to her laptop, Walker learned she was having an affair with her previous husband."

    "However, the Oakland County prosecutor, Jessica Cooper, believes Leon Walker is simply a cyberthief.
    She told the Free Press: "The guy is a hacker. It was password protected, he had wonderful skills and was highly trained. Then he downloaded them and used them in a very contentious way."


    Be aware, dear Wilders members that apparantly anyone who can read is;
    A: a person with wonderful skills
    B: highly trained
    C: a potential hacker

    Don't forget she left her email password written down in a notebook next to the computer.

    It was always my understanding that if you used a company's machine at your place of work to send email your employer could read the email as the network and machines were their property. Yet this man is arrested for reading email on a computer that I assume was in his own home? They used to arrest people for adultery. My how society had advanced. o_O

    It is amazing that she was the one cheating on him yet he was the one arrested.

    Well one this is for sure, it clearly supports the reasoning behind not writing down your password anywhere or using a password that can be gleaned from a book kept near by. LOL
