‘Obamacrat’ David Kernell sentenced to 366 days

Posted by joshpainter on November 12, 2010

A federal judge has sentenced the son of Tennessee state Rep. Mike Kernell (D-Memphis), convicted of hacking Sarah Palin’s e-mail, to one year and one day in federal custody, according to a report by Knoxville television station WBIR:

David Kernell was arrested in 2008 for hacking the former Alaska governor’s e-mail.

He recommended that Kernell serve his time at the Midway Rehabilitative Center on Magnolia Avenue in Knoxville, but that will be determined by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The judge also sentenced Kernell to three years probation.

Kernell will turn himself in at a later date.

Defense attorney Wade Davies had filed motions seeking probation at the sentencing, contending Kernell used publicly available information to guess his way into the e-mail in a prank. Prosecutors said the hacking was motivated by Palin’s status as a governor and candidate for vice president.

Last spring, a federal jury found Kernell guilty of obstruction of justice and unauthorized access in the breach of Sarah Palin’s e-mail this April. He gained access to her account in September 2008.

A former University of Tennessee student, Kernell described himself on his Facebook page as an “Obamacrat.” He was a member of UT for Barack Obama.

    Throw the book at him! It will send a message to other would-be hackers of ANYONE’s email from either side of the aisle. He needs to have been made an example for future stupid & illegal political shenanigans! Couldn’t have happened to a more smug and formerly “above the law” idiot!
