Hacker David Kernell goes to camp

"Hard" time? Not exactly...
The 23-year old son of a Democratic Tennessee state legislator, David Kernell, has begun his term in a dormitory-like, unfenced federal resort prison, a Bureau of Prisons spokesman said Thursday. Kernell was convicted last year of unauthorized access of a computer and obstruction of justice by hacking into Sarah Palin's e-mail account in September 2008:
Kernell reported on Monday to serve a term of a year and a day at the minimum security facility in Ashland, Kentucky, Bureau of Prisons spokesman Edmond Ross said.

"He'll be expected to work in food service or landscaping or any number of jobs the staff will assign him," Ross said. Ross said all inmates must work, if medically cleared.


Kernell is living in an open dormitory and inmates have access to educational, religious and other types of programing as well as recreational opportunities and social visits with persons who are cleared, Ross said. While there are no fences, all inmates are supervised at all times, Ross said.
Great opportunity to work on his tennis game...
