As George Washington University law Professor Jonathan Turley blogged, "We have seen the gradual over-criminalization of America where every act -- great or small -- has been translated into some form of crime."
And: "If this type of intrusion is criminal, millions of people would be felons. Without some evidence of a collateral crime such as identity theft, the prosecutors should have left this to the divorce courts. My assumption is that Ms. Cooper has other crimes to prosecute in Michigan."
Cooper called Walker a "hacker." I wonder what she would call a prosecutor's office that chose to threaten a jealous husband and fearful father with five years in prison by trolling for a law clearly enacted for other purposes. "Hacker" maybe. But in this story, that type of hacking is not a crime.
