Default Ex broke into my email

So the drama never ends. My lawyer and I have done most of our correspondence by email as it was fast, cheap and I live about an hour away so it was convenient. (94 emails from him)

The othe day I was going through my email when I noticed that there was stuff in my sent box to her.

It was fwd to her address and it was stuff that I think she was hoping to use in court to help her case.

I checked the ip address against an old email that she had sent me and sure enough same ip address.

This crazy woman guesses my password (has probably been trying for years), read all my legal correspondence, and stole my email!

I've contacted the police and they don't know if they can do anything but talk to her about ethics! I'm pretty sure if I had done it, I'd be arrested.

Anyway, my lawyer is aware of the whole situation, but doesn't seem to concerned about it.

Opinions?

Yeah that sucks, but you are the one being dramatic.

Charging her? Sure buddy.

This isn't Spy vs Spy. National security is not at risk.

Really? So if your ex read all your legal correspondence and stole it too, you wouldn't react? I didn't realize that laws only applied when national security was at risk. Your right, next time someone breaks into your home and steals something, I'm betting you won't call the cops, because it didn't put our national security at risk. I and the rest of the country thank you for not wasting tax payors dollars.

You need to be able to prove it, you can't just hurl accusations. Breaking a computer password is a criminal offence, but the police won't put any effort into investigating it, any more than they will will ticket you for not signaling a right hand turn 99% of the time unless they are in a bad mood.

You can file charges yourself with a justice of the peace but you need to have proof, and you need to be able show a case to the crown otherwise it will just be dismissed. She will claim that you sent her the emails out of a spiteful attempt to claim she broke into your email account.

dtte's comment about national security may seem harsh but it's true. The police would have to get a warrent and seize her harddrive and subpoena records from her isp. They might do this for a major drug dealer, they would do it for child porn, they would do it for terroism but they won't do it for a divorce case.

I have proof. And again, we laws for a reason, and they apply to everyone. Sorry if you think it's a waste of time. But I stand by what I say. Someone breaking into your email and reading and STEALING your email and trying to use it against you is a crime. No different from someone breaking into your home and stealing something
If she had just read it, I probably would not have pursued it, because I would have no proof. But she blatantly stole it. And left proof.

In which case you don't have to come here and ask permission. Go to a justice of the peace and swear out a complaint. If you want advice go to a criminal lawyer; a family law/divorce lawyer has no expertise in this matter.

I wasn't asking your permission, I was asking for opinions of others who may have gone through this. I didn't realize this forum was now only allowing questions approved by certain senior members. Good luck.

We gave you our opinions; you rejected them. This is a divorce forum, you have a criminal code question.

It's illegal to cross against a red light too. Go pick up your cross and carry it down to the closest stoplight and starting make citizen's arrests.

You don't seem to understand that the police have better things to do than immerse themselves in your he said/she said.

I had a gf figure out my e amail password, read erything delete it all post unflattering things on other sites with that passwod, I went to the police. Had somewhat compelling evidence, nah...nothing sadly and understandably there is not much they can do about it, in my case they called her she denied it to them but admitted it to me later and gave me back the new passord she created with an empty account. not really much can be done form my personal experience. Move on.....the police have "serious" things to worry about rather than domestic issues, understandably so.
