State Representative's son indicted in e-mail hacking incident

The Knoxville News-Sentinel is reporting that David Kernell, a University of Tennessee student and state Rep. Mike Kernell's (D-Memphis) son, will be arraigned before a federal judge today in Knoxville on charges that he illegally accessed Yahoo! e-mail accounts owned by Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

Our thoughts go out to Rep. Kernell, for whom this development has to be difficult. On a personal note, I have a child who appears to be very smart, but he's not yet four years old. Sometimes looking ahead 12-15 years can give one the shudders.

But, let's all remember, in this great country the accused are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
