Legal Question

Asked on: 7/25/13, 6:10 am

I obtained my husbands email and Facebook password because he entered it in front of me, but doesn't know that I saw. I used this info after discovering he was using his phone to talk to another woman. They have been having an online affair and I have the correspondences, including x-rated photos, between the two. Can I be charged for going through his messages without his consent?

** On a sidenote, How do I respond to answers to my question? I have asked this already, and received a question to my question, but didn't know how to respond. Thanks.

Computer Trespass (Va. Code Sec. 18.2 152.4), Computer Invasion of Privacy (Va. Code Sec. 18.2-152.5) and Civil Relief, damages (Va. Code Sec. 18.2-152.12) would appear to be possibilities against the alleged violator in the scenario described.
