Two Former Alabama Court Employees Accused of Stealing

Tools

By Molly Grady

Two former employees of the Alabama court system have been indicted on federal charges accusing them of stealing computer programming code for Alabama's court data system.

 

Court records show a grand jury in Montgomery indicted 58-year-old Mike Carroll and 35-year-old Jill Hawthorne on Wednesday. Carroll is the former director of Information Systems for the Alabama Administrative Office of Courts and Hawthorne is a former database administrator for the courts. Both are from Montgomery.

 

Court records do not indicate if they have attorneys yet.

 

They are accused of stealing code for the county court records database called Namemaster as well as its digital blueprint and transferring it to a software development company in Orlando, Fla. They are also accused of transferring thousands of Jefferson County court records to the company.
