Hacking Voicemails Lands Jealous PR Guru in Court
A former Dolce & Gabbana PR Director, Wise has been met with allegations that she hacked into the voicemail systems of the subsequent lovers of her ex-boyfriends. The story broke back in July when Page Six of the New York Post reported she'd been arrested on suspicion of breaking into the voicemail of Nina Freudenberger. An interior designer, Freudenberger shared an ex with Wise in Downtown Records founder and CEO, Josh Deutsch. Wise reportedly used an application called 'SpoofCard' to gain access to Freudenberger's voice mail 337 times, listening to and erasing messages at will. (We assume Wise used 'SpoofCard' to make her calls appear to come from Freudenberger's own phone, bypassing any security measures the voicemail system may have had.)
Since then, other women claiming to be the victims of Wise's insane jealousy have come forward. The four accusers listed in the complaint, three of whom remain anonymous, claim to have had their voicemail hacked a total number of 700 times. That doesn't include the several hundred failed attempts Wise made, according to prosecutors.
The Post reports that Wise has confessed to police, though it does not appear that she has plead guilty to the charges that face her. To that end, she has been charged with computer trespassing, eavesdropping, computer tampering, and aggravated harassment by each of the four complainants, and stalking by one of them. Edward Kratt, Wise's lawyer, told the Post that the felony charges of computer trespassing were not befitting the specific accusations in the complaint. If convicted, Wise could face up to four years in prison.
Maybe this will serve as a cautionary tale to all jilted ex-boyfriends and -girlfriends out there. No matter how badly you want a person back, it's probably not worth breaking the law. [From: New York Post]
