The shocking allegations by Jon Gosselin's former lover that he hacked into Kate Gosselin's email and telephone accounts could land him behind bars says TV's Judge Alex.
"If he really hacked into her email and bugged her phone, he's looking at crimes that are punishable by prison" Judge Alex Ferrer told RadarOnline exclusively.
Ferrer says that Jon Gosselin - despite still being legally wed to Kate- "may have violated state and federal law" if he illegally invaded her electronic privacy.
Kate Gosselin is considering legal action after seeing RadarOnline's exclusive video interview with Stephanie Santoro in which Jon bragged that he hacked into Kate's email, telephone and banking accounts.
Kate has a number of legal options says Ferrar. "She can certainly have a civil claim against him," Ferrar says. "She could go in front of the family court judge and ask for contempt sanctions against him. She could file criminal charges against him. She could do a whole host of things."
Ferrar, who is a former police officer, says that Kate should ask police to begin an investigation to look for spyware or other evidence that would prove her case. "She should be taking that information to the DA's office and telling them here's a witness that he hacked into their account."
Ferrar adds that Jon - who has denied the allegations - may have created an array of headaches for himself.
"If this is true, he's obviously working his way down the ladder of success," says Ferrer.
