Man Faces 5years in prison for Snooping Through Wife's email

Now I have heard of cases where a man is prosecuted because he neglects his family or domestic violence, the murder of his spouse etc but I have never heard of a man being prosecuted and may face 5 years in prison for snooping through his wife's email...

Are this people for real?

The alleged man Leon Walker from Michigan, who suspected his wife of cheating and suspected it was affecting their daughter logged into Clara Walker's email account last summer.
On how he got his wife's password.....

According to him it was easy for him to log into his wife's email, cos she kept the password in a book next to the computer.

While Walker believed it was ok, Oakland County prosecutors did not and charged him with felony misuse of computer. If convicted he will face up to 5 years in prison.

This is Michigan's first criminal prosecution for snooping through a spouse email..So far two Michigan judges have refused to toss out the charge in the potentially precedent -setting case.

Prosecutors contend that Walker-who is a computer technician- illegally hacked into his wife computer after she had filed for divorce, but Walker's lawyer calls the prosecutions claim an overzealous application of a law meant to protect trade secrets and credit card data.

In fact the story goes on and on.....

My point is: shouldn't there be a line drawn between morality and legality... Even if she had filed for divorce they were still living together...and why should you want to charge him for a thing as flimsy as this and if convicted he stands 5 years in prison....Really it this a joke or are you having a laugh....

Why has society decided to make it a point of duty to break marriages and homes?
I can understand it if he was convicted for beating her or molesting her but not for this...

As a relationship expert... For me this is absurd..... Society should look for ways to build and keep marriages not destroy them....

I know one thing a lot of kids suffer cos of a destroyed home...

My opinion... please let me know what you think.
