Corrections worker accused of hacking ex-boyfriend
A Davenport woman faces criminal charges after she was accused of using her work computer to access her ex-boyfriend’s email account without his permission.
A spokesman for East Moline Police said Juliet Mullery, 32, was charged with two felony counts of official misconduct plus one misdemeanor count of computer tampering.
Mullery is accused of using her work computer to get into her ex-boyfriend’s Gmail account between October and November 2013. She is also accused of deleting data from that account without the ex-boyfriend’s permission, and of accessing his computer without his permission.
“Mullery is an employee at the Illinois Department of Corrections-East Moline Correctional Center,” the spokesman said.
“She has been removed from her duties and placed on paid administrative leave,” said Illinois Department of Corrections spokesman Tom Shaer. “If and when she is indicted, she will immediately be put on unpaid leave pending judicial verdict.”
Police said Mullery was arrested by the Rock Island County Sheriff’s Department and later released on bond.
