Testimony starts at trial in Palin e-mail hacking

A roommate of an ex-college student charged with hacking Sarah Palin's e-mail account testified that the accused man didn't believe in what Palin wanted to do when she was running for vice president in 2008.

Twenty-two-year-old David Kernell's attorney told a federal jury seated Tuesday that his client had no criminal intent and guessed his way into her personal e-mail. However, Kernell's former college roommate gave his testimony to open the trial in Knoxville.

Palin has been subpoenaed to testify and Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Weddle said in court for the first time that Palin's husband, Todd Palin, and their daughter, Bristol, are also potential witnesses.

Prosecutors have not said when the former Alaska governor or any other witnesses will take the stand. (Source)
