    No sentence yet but he ain't a-gonna get 50 years.

    KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (April 30) -- The son of a Democratic Tennessee lawmaker was convicted Friday on two charges in the hacking of Sarah Palin's e-mail account while she campaigned on the Republican presidential ticket in 2008.

    The federal court jury reached its verdict against David Kernell, 22, after four days of deliberation. He was found guilty of obstruction of justice and unauthorized access to a computer, but was acquitted on a charge of wire fraud.

    David Kernell was convicted Friday on charges related to the hacking of Sarah Palin's e-mail while she was the GOP vice presidential candidate in 2008.
    The jury deadlocked on a charge of identify theft. Prosecutors reserve the right to have a new trial on that charge. The charge of obstructing an investigation carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence and unauthorized access to a computer is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum one-year sentence.
