UT Student in Palin Email Case Released from Supervision

University of Tennessee student David Kernell — who was arrested five years ago for hacking the personal email of former Alaska Governor and then Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin — was released from the remainder of his supervision. Kernell completed a year in federal prison in November 2011 but remained under the supervision of the U.S Probation Office through November 2014. Knoxnews notes that the U.S. attorney’s office did not resist the release.
