Ohio official suspended for data misuse

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 27 (UPI) -- The Ohio attorney general's office says it has suspended one of its lawyers for allegedly using state databases to learn information about acquaintances.

A spokeswoman for Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers said Erin G. Rosen, the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway general counsel, was found to have allegedly been finding data on social acquaintances through the private databases, The Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch said Thursday.


As a result of her alleged actions, Rosen served a temporary suspension last month and has since been transferred to a different crime victim's services position, spokeswoman Michelle Gatchell said.

Gatchell added that information regarding the frequency of Rosen's alleged actions was unavailable.

Former Attorney General Marc Dann once worked closely with Rosen on a child-custody case, the Dispatch said.

Dann resigned his position in May amid allegations of improper conduct while in his state post.
