The University of Tennessee college student accused of illegally accessing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's Yahoo e-mail account was formally charged today on new fraud and obstruction-of-justice charges.David Kernell was arraigned in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, five months after a federal grand jury first handed down charges against him. He had been facing just one count of illegally accessing a protected computer, but prosecutors are now accusing him of three counts of computer fraud and one count of obstruction of justice.
