Bummer. Leftie Obama Supporter & Palin Hacker Sent to Prison After All

A federal jury convicted David Kernell, a college student who broke into Sarah Palin’s email account, of unauthorized access to a computer and obstruction of justice. The young Obama supporter was sentenced to a year in prison in November. The judge recommended that Kernell serve his time in a halfway house. Sadly, that didn’t work out.

Sarah Palin testified against Kernell, the son of a prominent liberal politician from Tennessee, at the trial.

David Kernell, the son of liberal Tennessee State Representative Mike Kernell was indicted in October 2008 by a federal grand jury in Knoxville, Tennessee., for intentionally accessing without authorization the e-mail account of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons rejected a federal judge’s recommendation that David Kernell be housed at a Magnolia Avenue halfway house instead of a prison.
Knox News reported:

A former University of Tennessee student convicted of illegally accessing Sarah Palin’s private e-mail account is too smart and too loved to rate a bed in a Knoxville halfway house.

So says the Federal Bureau of Prisons in a rare public explanation of why the agency rejected a federal judge’s recommendation that David Kernell be housed at a Magnolia Avenue halfway house instead of a prison.

BOP Chief Jose Santana wrote in a letter to U.S. District Judge Thomas Phillips that he could not honor the judge’s request that Kernell spend his sentence of one day shy of a year at the Midway Rehabilitation Center because there are too many needier felons waiting in line.

“Our agency contracts (halfway house) bed space for inmates who have a greater need … such as those with limited job skills/resources and family and community support,” Santana wrote. “Mr. Kernell has attended three years of college and has the support of his family.”

The bureau instead sent Kernell, 22, to a minimum-security facility in Ashland, Ky.

In his first public comments on the BOP’s decision, defense attorney Wade Davies said Thursday that he found the explanation lacking.

Most Likely Scenario – The prison will be full of democrats and Obama supporters who will treat him like a hero.
