Ex-sheriff’s programmer charged with tampering

PHOENIX — The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office’s former top computer
programmer has been indicted on charges that he hacked into the agency’s
computers and illegally accessed a police database.

The sheriff’s office says Robert Rampy used log-on information belonging to a
current sheriff’s employee and a county-owned laptop to access the agency’s
computers after he resigned in September 2012 to pursue another job prospect.

The indictment was handed down on Friday but wasn’t publicly released until
Wednesday.

Rampy is charged with identity theft, computer tampering and unauthorized
release or access to criminal history records from September 2012 through early
January.

Messages left at Rampy’s home on Tuesday and Wednesday weren’t immediately
returned.
