Computer stolen at the Hall of Justice puts some at risk for identity theft
A computer stolen at the Louisville Hall of Justice puts some people at risk of identity theft.
The computer used by two Assistant County Attorneys was taken from a publicly accessible conference room. Louisville Metro launched an internal investigation, after the theft was reported. With the help of an outside forensic expert, the city determined there may have been sensitive information on the computer.
