    Very ballsy.


    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.

    Sounds like a routine check of NCIC records. All he got was "no wants or warrants."

    Yeah, we just got these two press releases this week in our office email. The LETS system does have criminal history info.

    Attorney General
    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE For More Information, contact:
    August 5, 2009 Joy Patterson (334) 242-7491
    Suzanne Webb (334) 242-7351

    AG KING ANNOUNCES CONVICTION OF FORMER LOXLEY POLICE CHIEF
    (MONTGOMERY)— Attorney General Troy King announced the conviction today of a former
    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
    is imposed.
    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.

    AG KING ANNOUNCES ARREST OF FORMER WETUMPKA POLICE OFFICER
    (MONTGOMERY)— Attorney General Troy King announced the arrest of a former Wetumpka
    police officer, who is charged with obtaining criminal offender record information under false
    pretenses through the Law Enforcement Tactical System (LETS). Otis Williams, 48, of Wetumpka,
    surrendered to the Elmore County Sheriff’s Office on July 30 following his indictment by an Elmore
    County grand jury.
    The Attorney General's Office presented evidence to the Elmore County grand jury resulting
    in the one-count indictment* against Williams. Obtaining criminal record information under false
    pretenses is an unclassed felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a fine of not less
    than $5,000 and not more than $10,000.
    "The LETS system is an invaluable tool for law enforcement, and the information the system
    contain is protected by law," said Attorney General King. "Access to this data is privileged and
    confidential, and it is a crime to use LETS for any purpose other than a legitimate law enforcement or
    criminal justice purpose. It is essential that we maintain the honor and integrity of this vital data to
    protect the citizens of Alabama."
    The case was investigated by agents of the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center and
    prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Stephanie Billingslea of Attorney General King's Public
    Corruption and White Collar Crime Division. Attorney General King also thanked Wetumpka Police
    Department for their assistance with the investigation.
    *Note: An indictment is merely an accusation. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
