Hacking celebrities

Date: July 05, 2007

A woman has admitted stalking the lead singer of American rock group Linkin Park and using US government computers to obtain his personal information.

Ex-laboratory worker Devon Townsend accessed Chester Bennington's e-mail account and mobile phone voicemail, intercepting messages and pictures.

She also called Bennington's wife and threatened her, investigators told a court in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The 28-year-old could be jailed or fined heavily when she is sentenced.
