California Woman Charged With Using "Spy Software" on Police Officer's Phone

October 20, 2014  | 

A woman recently sentenced to state prison for identity theft was charged Friday in U.S. District Court in San Jose in the wiretapping of a police officer's phone and possessing illegal spyware, the U.S. Attorney's Office reported.

Kristin Nyunt was charged with two counts of illegal wiretapping and possessing an illegal interception device while living in Monterey County from 2010 to 2012, U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag told the Bay City News.

According to federal prosecutors, Nyunt intercepted communications, including sensitive law enforcement information, using "spy software" she allegedly installed on the mobile phone of a police officer.

She is also charged with illegally having interception devices, including spy software brands such as Mobistealth, StealthGenie and mSpy, knowing that they were designed for surreptitious interception of wire, oral and electrical communications, prosecutors said.
