Former Philadelphia news anchor Larry Mendte on Monday was charged with
hacking into the e-mail accounts of Alycia Lane, his co-anchor at CBS
affiliate KYW-TV and reported rival, hundreds of times over the course
of two years.
During this time, Mendte allegedly leaked privileged legal information
about Lane's personal life to the press "in an attempt to undermine his
colleague's ongoing legal cases," said Acting U.S. Attorney Laurie Magid
at a press conference on Monday.
