  (WOMENSENEWS)--As Sherri Peak ran errands in suburban Seattle, she
  often saw her estranged husband in the rearview mirror of her Toyota
  Land Cruiser. Robert M. Peak showed up at her Bellevue business, at
  restaurants, at shops in downtown Seattle, and at the homes of
  co-workers.

  ...

  When police searched Robert Peak's home, they found Sherri Peak's
  e-mails, including correspondence with police and her divorce
  attorney, and the spyware program he had used to obtain them.

  ...

  They found passwords and account numbers he had hacked from her
  computer.
