TUCSON, AZ - A former Tucson police officer has pleaded guilty to computer tampering for using criminal justice databases to check up on romantic rivals.
Andrea Middleton was indicted June 14 on three counts of felony computer tampering, and the Arizona Daily Star reports that she pleaded guilty Tuesday to two of the counts.
A Tucson Police Department report said Middleton harassed two women last November after inappropriately using her access to criminal justice databases to acquire personal information about the women.
According to the department, Middleton resigned the day before she was indicted. She'd been on paid administrative leave since November.
Middleton said in her resignation letter that she'd been subjected to abuse that the department ignored.
She is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 13in Pima County Superior Court.
