3 charged with getting TV anchor's medical records

Jon Gambrell reports:

Prosecutors have charged an Arkansas doctor and two former hospital workers with illegally accessing the patient records of a Little Rock television news anchorwoman brought to the hospital after being viciously attacked at her home.

In documents filed Monday in U.S. District Court, prosecutors say the three former St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center staff members improperly accessed the records of KATV anchorwoman Anne Pressly on Oct. 20, the day she was brought in, or the day after. She died Oct. 25, having never regained consciousness.

Hospital emergency room coordinator Candida Griffin, patient account representative Sarah Elizabeth Miller and Dr. Jay Holland, a family doctor who had visitation privileges at the hospital, each face up to a year in prison and $50,000 fine if convicted of the misdemeanor charge.
