PHILADELPHIA - A fired TV newscaster admitted Friday that he hacked into
his co-anchor's e-mail accounts, pleading guilty to one count of
illegally accessing a computer. 

Larry Mendte admitted that he viewed hundreds of Alycia Lane's e-mails
from March 2006 to May 2008, including ones from her agent, her
then-husband and lawyers representing her after she was arrested in New
York last year and fired from the station.

"There is no question he wrecked her career," said lawyer Paul Rosen,
who represents Lane in her wrongful-termination suit against KYW-TV.
