Former Alabama Marine police officer arrested

Posted by: Mario Hendricks - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A former Alabama Marine police officer, who is charged with misusing confidential law enforcement information, was arrest today.

40 year old Noel Christopher Wood, of Marbury, was arrested today after turning himself into the Tallapoosa County Sheriff's Office. He's currently being held in the Tallapoosa County Jail under a $20,000 bond.

The Alabama Attorney General's Office presented evidence to a Tallapoosa County grand jury on Jan. 6, resulting in the four-count indictment against Wood. Wood is charged with four counts of willfully obtaining or seeking to obtain criminal offender record information by accessing the Law Enforcement Tactical System (LETS) under the false pretense that it was for an official law enforcement or criminal justice purpose.

Each count is a felony violation punishable by up to five years imprisonment and a fine of between $5,000 and $10,000.

"It is a crime to use LETS for anything other than a legitimate law enforcement or criminal justice purpose," said Maury Mitchell, ACJIC director.  "Access to the data provided in LETS is privileged and confidential, we will not hesitate to investigate and recommend for prosecution any person who unlawfully accesses or misuses this information."
