I read the Minnesota statute.
I think the reason the cops got involved is the above. The credit card fraud. If that wasn't involved, the cops would have done nothing. I also do not believe that his actions violated the law, even if he admitted he connected.
"609.891 Unauthorized computer access.
Subdivision 1. Crime. A person is guilty of
unauthorized computer access if the person intentionally and
without authority attempts to or does penetrate a computer
security system. "
The key there is "computer security system", basically, HACKING. If the AP is open, there is no coputer security system to penetrate.
2a and the definitions doen't apply because they do not defiune "computer security system".
