AZ: Court clerk: Security breach affects hundreds of court cases

Raquel Hendrickson reports:

“A severe dereliction of duty” is what Clerk of the Superior Court Amanda Stanford is calling a reported security breach that could impact hundreds of criminal cases in Pinal County.

Stanford is alleging her predecessor, Chad Roche, gave the county attorney’s office access to files that had been sealed by the court. Her report released Wednesday also explained a network security issue that allowed “everyone” to access records and even delete them without a password.

Roche said all security issued had been dealt with by the time he left office.
