Dr. Jekyll, or - federal prosecutors call him - Mr. Hyde?

Nearly six months after FBI agents showed up at his front door, former 
CBS3 news anchor Larry Mendte will be sentenced Monday for hacking into 
the e-mail of one-time colleague Alycia Lane and sending salicious 
details to tabloids.

Mendte, fired in June, pleaded guilty to the federal felony charge of 
accessing, without authorization, a computer. Mendte, who had said he 
felt threatened by his better-paid colleague, admitted to installing a 
keystroke-capture device on Lane's computer. He continued to spy on her 
after she was fired in January over an incident involving New York 
police. All told, prosecutors allege, Mendte hacked into her computer 
more than 3,000 times over two years.
