@Bassey - Computer laws in North Carolina

"To end up actually being arrested for that seems a bit harsh."

In the state of North Carolina, willfully and knowingly accessing a computer system without authorization is a Class 1 misdemeanor. If they deleted any of her e-mail, it is upped to a Class G felony.
