According to the AP, Larry Mendte has admitted that he hacked into Alycia Lane’s e-mail and leaked her private information to a reporter from the Philadelphia Daily News. This admission comes just two months after Mendte’s home was raided by the FBI and his computers from home and work were seized. Although not likely, Mendte could be sentenced to up to five years in prison when he is sentenced in November.
Mendte admitted that he viewed hundreds of e-mails after installing a keystroke-tracking software on her computer at work. Lane maintains that she complained about the possibility that her e-mails were being leaked but her employer, KYW-TV, “treated her as if she was paranoid.” Lane claims that her career has been ruined as a result of Mendte’s behavior.
