Ex-Arizona policewoman gets probation for data misuse
TUCSON, Ariz. -- A former Tucson police officer who pleaded guilty to computer tampering for using criminal justice databases to check up on romantic rivals has been sentenced to probation.
Pima County prosecutors say Andrea Middleton was given three months of probation Friday.
She pleaded guilty to two counts of computer tampering last month.
Middleton resigned in June from the police department, where she had worked for seven years.
A subsequent police internal investigation documented how Middleton harassed two women via telephone and text messages over several days last November.
The Arizona Daily Star reports the substance of the calls and texts focused on the relationship at least one of the women was having with a former boyfriend of Middleton's.
