KNOXVILLE, Tenn., March 11 (UPI) -- An attorney for a University of Tennessee student accused of accessing Sarah Palin's e-mail account says the former governor will testify in his client's case.

Defense attorney Wade Davies said Wednesday when Palin arrives next month at the U.S. District Court in Knoxville, Tenn., the former Alaskan governor should be in possession of all documents related to her personal Yahoo! e-mail account, the Knoxville (Tenn.) News-Sentinel reported.

"I don't want to get in the position where at the last minute there are questions about whether (subpoenas) were properly delivered," said Davies, who is representing University of Tennessee student David C. Kernell.

In a four-count indictment, Kernell is accused of illegally accessing Palin's e-mail account and allowing at least one other person to access the account, as well as stealing the politician's identity and attempting to cover up his alleged crimes.

The News-Sentinel said Kernell's trial is scheduled to begin April 20 with a March 24 pretrial hearing set to hear arguments regarding Davies' records request.
