Private Investigator Gets 3 Months for E-mail Hacking

A private investigator in New York who illegally rummaged through the emails of dozens of people was sentenced to three months in prison as questions arose about how his case was investigated. Two victims of Eric Saldarriaga’s hacking told Judge Richard J. Sullivan of the Federal District Court in Manhattan that they were annoyed that prosecutors had given them little information about the extent of Mr. Saldarriaga’s activities and the potential invasion of privacy.
