Michigan husband who suspected his wife was cheating and accessed her e-mail could be sent to prison for felony computer misuse charges.

Leon Walker, a 33-year-old computer technician from Rochester Hills, faces up to five years behind bars when he goes to trial Feb. 7. Walker was charged in the case in February 2009, after his then wife, Clara Walker, discovered he had used her password to access her Gmail account.

Leon Walker was Clara Walker's third husband.

He told the Detroit Free Press he accessed his wife's account because he suspected she was cheating on him. When he checked her account, he said he discovered e-mails that indicated she was having an affair with her second husband, a man who the Free Press reported had been arrested for beating her in front of a son she had with her first husband.

Walker, who is free on bond, said he took those e-mails and gave them to his wife's first husband, who used the information to file a motion to obtain custody of their child, the newspaper reported.

"I was doing what I had to do," Leon Walker told the Free Press. "We're talking about putting a child in danger."

Clara Walker subsequently was granted a divorce from Leon Walker, The Associated Press reported. She also notified authorities about the breach of her e-mail account, something prosecutors have not taken lightly.

"The guy is a hacker," Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper said in a voice mail response to the Free Press. "It was password protected; he had wonderful skills and was highly trained. Then he downloaded them and used them in a very contentious way."

According to CNN, Walker said he did not hack the computer and simply entered her password, which she kept next to the computer.

Walker's defense attorney, Leon Weiss, told the Free Press that Cooper is misusing the law by charging his client under a statute that typically applies to identity theft or stealing intellectual property or trade secrets.
