Caution should always be heeded when you are tempted to do a bit of investigating on your own. The last thing anyone would want to happen is to find yourself in a situation where you break the law in an attempt to find out if your significant other is cheating on you. The following excerpt was taken from a news source in Michigan in which the prosecutor’s office is taking a pro-active approach to making sure individuals are aware of the legality of gaining access to a spouse’s email.
“A man could find himself in prison after snooping into his wife’s email account.
Thirty-three-year-old Leon Walker of Rochester Hills said he thought his now ex-wife was having an affair so he broke into her Gmail account.
Walker said Ciara Walker’s e-mails showed that she was indeed having a relationship with one of her ex-husbands.
Ciara Walker filed for divorce, which was granted earlier this month.
The Oakland County Prosecutor has charged Walker with felony computer misuse. A charge typically handed out to prosecute identity theft and stealing trade secrets.”
