Ex-Arizona County Commander Indicted on Computer Fraud Charges

November 19, 2013  | 

A former Maricopa County (Ariz.) Sheriff’s Department commander whose home was raided earlier this year by federal agents was indicted on allegations of computer tampering and illegally accessing a criminal-justice database, according to the Sheriff’s Office, reports azcentral.com.

Former sheriff’s Cmdr. Bob Rampy resigned from the office a little more than a year ago after expressing an interest in a new job, according to a sheriff’s spokesman. But after Rampy failed to get the new job, sheriff’s investigators believe he embarked on an effort to use his knowledge of the sheriff’s systems for his own gain.

Rampy, who worked for seven years as the sheriff’s information-technology director, began illegally accessing criminal-justice information that is solely for the use of law enforcement and tampered with the sheriff’s computer systems on several occasions between September 2012 and January of this year, said Lt. Brandon Jones, a sheriff’s spokesman.

Investigators are still stumped by Rampy’s motives, Jones said.

I do find it interesting that he was Sheriff Joe Arpaio's right hand man.

Ima.

Didn't see anything in the article that said he was the Sheriff's "Right Hand Man". You shouldn't be reading into things and making comments. Stick your head back in your ass until the next thing you want to make a stupid comment about.
