Husband Spying on Wife’s Email: Going To Jail for Five Years?

Posted on 02 January 2011 by author

If you think its okay to read your wife’s e-mails behind her back, think again. You might end up like this man below.

Rochester Hills, Michigan – Leon Walker, 33 years old, is a computer technician who is currently prosecuted with felony under computer misuse aka Michigan statute 752.795. He is currently facing five years of imprisonment.

The said statute thereby accuses Walker of the said issue:

“A person shall not intentionally and without authorization or by exceeding valid authorization do any of the following: Access or cause access to be made to a computer program, computer, computer system or computer network to acquire, alter, damage delete or destroy property or otherwise use the service of a computer program, computer, computer system or computer network.”

So how did he end up being sued? Well, here’s the story.

(woman reading a suspicious email)

Suspecting that his wife, Clara Walker, was cheating on him, Walker sneaked into his wife’s password book. Using a shared laptop, he then used the password to access his wife’s e-mail and check some suspicious looking messages. Walker was right. His wife was cheating him. But what’s worse is that she’s having an affair with her second ex-husband who was once jailed for beating her in front of her kid.

But that’s not the end of the story yet. The kid is in fact the son of his wife from her first. Concerned that the child will experience domestic violence again, Walker decided to forward the messages to her wife’s first husband in order to protect the child.With Attorney Leon Weiss to stand on his defense, Walker’s case will start on trial this coming February 7, 2011.

What do you think? Does Walker deserve to be jailed?

    There are laws in place and no matter the relationship if you break them then you should be held responsible. It sucks because of what happened but from the sound of things he knew about her history and he took the risks.

    She should have been up front and honest with him! Cheaters cause so much pain for people. I feel sorry for the guy. Hopefully the judge will be understanding and let him off.
