someone without authorization or consent, programmed their blackberry and their laptop with my personal/business email address so that any and all emails sent to me would also be sent to them. I never gave them consent nor knew that it was happening until they presented me with the information they stole from my emails. This was done to "catch me" in some things that they did not want me doing. None of which is illegal. They then printed them off and made threats towards me and another person. Is this act illegal and in any way a violation of state law? if so, what grade of crime is it?
