A nurse was sentenced Thursday for illegally accessing her supervisor's personal email accounts, copying personal information, and distributing it.
Adriann Brierley, 37, of Buckeye Lake, was sentenced to four months in prison after pleading guilty on Oct. 31, 2012 to one felony count of computer intrusion.
Brierley, a registered nurse, broke into her the password protected accounts for her supervisor at the hospital where they worked.
According to court documents, in 2008, Brierley accessed the accounts, including her personal email, a social network, and a private dating service, copied all the information stored at the accounts, and reset the passwords.
Brierley created a lengthy document composed of the personal emails, photographs and dating site conversations of the victim.
The document contained Brierley's derogatory comments about the victim's job performance, sex life and personal photographs.
Brierley sent the document to the victim's email contacts, employer and coworkers.
"The victim's workplace became difficult due to the embarrassment and the false allegations in the widely-circulated document," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah A. Solove.
Brierley will also be under court supervision for two years following completion of her prison sentence.
