Dr. Jekyll, or - federal prosecutors call him - Mr. Hyde?
Nearly six months after FBI agents showed up at his front door, former
CBS3 news anchor Larry Mendte will be sentenced Monday for hacking into
the e-mail of one-time colleague Alycia Lane and sending salicious
details to tabloids.
Mendte, fired in June, pleaded guilty to the federal felony charge of
accessing, without authorization, a computer. Mendte, who had said he
felt threatened by his better-paid colleague, admitted to installing a
keystroke-capture device on Lane's computer. He continued to spy on her
after she was fired in January over an incident involving New York
police. All told, prosecutors allege, Mendte hacked into her computer
more than 3,000 times over two years.
