Memphis officer charged with computer fraud

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Federal prosecutors have charged a Memphis police officer with illegally accessing the FBI’s National Crime Information Center database.

The U.S. attorney’s office for West Tennessee said Wednesday that it has charged 36-year-old Sean Fritz with two counts of computer fraud and one count of lying to a federal agency. Fritz was arrested Tuesday.

Prosecutors say Fritz accessed the crime database two times to aid a confidential source for illegal purposes. The FBI says Fritz denied using the database to help the source for illegal purposes.
