SC: State employee who stole over 220,000 Medicaid patients' information sentenced

There’s an update to a large insider breach in April 2012 involving South Carolina’s Dept. of Health and Human Services Medicaid database. Christopher Lykes, who was indicted in February 2013 and pleaded guilty in October 2013, has been sentenced to 3 years of probation and  300 hours of community service after pleading guilty to 4 counts of unlawful access and use of confidential records of the SCDHHS.

I’d say he got off pretty easy, wouldn’t you?
