BALDWIN CO., AL (WSFA) -

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange's office announced Friday the arrest of the state's former Chief Agent for Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center (ACJIC) on numerous felony charges.

Dennis Bodine, 62, a Foley resident, surrendered at the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office where he was processed and released on bond. Bodine's arrest stems from an indictment by a Baldwin County grand jury on April 10.

The Attorney General's office says Bodine faces 19 counts of willfully and unlawfully accessing the Alabama Law Enforcement Tactical System (LETS) to look at confidential private information.

The information was in regards to unidentified individuals and the access is said to be unrelated to any official law enforcement duty. Accessing the criminal record information in such a manner is an unclassified felony.

Bodine faces a maximum of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine per count if he is convicted.
