delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly

What a goofball. He should know better.
Sounds to me like he wasn't necessarily running a "background" check. Sounds like he was just checking NCIC hits and DL information. I don't know about the rest of you, but I can't run crim histories on my MDT.No one has greater love than this, to lay down ones life for ones friends - John 15:13

AG KING ANNOUNCES CONVICTION OF FORMER LOXLEY POLICE CHIEF(MONTGOMERY)— Attorney General Troy King announced the conviction today of a former--30--
Loxley police chief for multiple crimes related to misuse and inappropriate access of confidential
computer criminal records. Clifford Bradley Yetter Jr., 64, of Loxley, pleaded and was sentenced in
Baldwin County Circuit Court on July 30.
Yetter pleaded guilty to two counts of unauthorized use of a computer to obtain criminal records
of individuals through the Law Enforcement Tactical System (LETS) under false pretenses. For these
crimes, he was sentenced to two concurrent sentences of 12 months, which was suspended for a term of
two years probation, and fined a total of $2,000 plus court costs and fees.
Yetter pleaded guilty also to nine counts of willfully obtaining or seeking to obtain criminal
records through LETS under the false pretense that it was for official law enforcement purposes. He
was not sentenced at this time for these nine counts, but approved to enter a pretrial intervention
program for a period of five years. Defendants who successfully complete the requirements of a pretrial
intervention program are not sentenced and a final order of their conviction for those crimes is not
entered. However, if they do not adhere to the program’s terms, the conviction is entered and a sentence
In addition, Yetter was made to surrender his Alabama Peace Officers Standards and Training
Commission (APOST) certification and agreed not to seek future law enforcement employment.
"When a police chief has violated the laws he was entrusted to enforce and protect, it is a
serious matter," said Attorney General King. "The LETS program is an invaluable tool for law
enforcement, and the information this system contains is protected by law. Access to this data is
privileged and confidential, and it is a crime to use LETS for any purposes other than legitimate law
enforcement or criminal justice purpose. It is essential that we maintain the integrity of this vital
system to protect the citizens of Alabama."
Yetter was arrested in April, 2008 along with Kay Wilson Hicks, the former Loxley municipal
court clerk, who pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawfully obtaining or seeking to obtain criminal
records under false pretenses from the LETS system on December 19, 2008.
The cases were investigated and arrests were made by agents of the Alabama Criminal Justice
Information Center, and prosecuted by Assistant Attorneys General Ben Baxley and James Rutter of
the Attorney General King's Public Corruption and White Collar Crime Division, and by former
Deputy Attorney General Joseph Fitzpatrick.
