Klince offered "a lifetime of apologies" and then fainted as he was sent down.
During the six years of court battles, Kline lost his job as a judge and was ordered to wear a tracking anklet and placed on home< confinement while his case was decided in court.
Kline will be registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life and will not be allowed to possess any computer equipment and that he not access the Internet during his three years of probation.
The case was all started when a Canadian hacker Brad Willman broke into the judge's Irvine home computer and discovered sexually explicit images of young boys and a diary that revealed Kline's fantasies involving young boys. A subsequent police search of the Judge's court computer revealed more images and more dodgy Web sites.
