Former Philadelphia news anchor Larry Mendte on Monday was charged with 
hacking into the e-mail accounts of Alycia Lane, his co-anchor at CBS 
affiliate KYW-TV and reported rival, hundreds of times over the course 
of two years.

During this time, Mendte allegedly leaked privileged legal information 
about Lane's personal life to the press "in an attempt to undermine his 
colleague's ongoing legal cases," said Acting U.S. Attorney Laurie Magid 
at a press conference on Monday.
