A Salt Lake City man faces up to 15 years in prison for allegedly
intercepting the e-mail of two of his former bosses, the Department of
Justice said.

William K. Dobson, 55, is charged with surreptitiously accessing the e-mail
system of a Utah technology firm after he left the company. He has been
indicted on two counts of intercepting electronic communications and one
count of illegally obtaining information from a protected computer, the DOJ
announced late Wednesday. The DOJ did not release the name of Dobson's
former employer.

After Dobson left the company over business and financial disagreements, he
accessed the company's e-mail system twice to program it to send e-mail to
an unauthorized inbox he created on the company's system, the DOJ said.
Dobson allegedly routed the e-mail of the company's chief executive officer
and its vice president of engineering to this in-box.
