Sensitive documents found inside vehicle owned by Clayton County sheriff’s employee

Kathy Jefcoats of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Genevieve Prejean, a Clayton County sheriff’s employee, is under investigation after local police found a stack of sensitive material inside her car during a traffic stop. A convicted felon, Brandyn Keith Mathis, was driving her car at the time of the stop:

Prejean told police she took home the stack of documents generated from Georgia Crime Information Center. Prejean told police she left the documents in a bag inside the car but officers found the papers inside her glove compartment, Sanchez said. …. Sanchez said Prejean could be charged with unlawfully disseminating the sensitive materials, which contain names, phone numbers, dates of birth and Social Security numbers.

“Those documents are not supposed to even leave the building,” Sanchez said. “She could be fined $50,000 and possibly receive up to 15 years in prison. The Sheriff’s Office can also be sanctioned for allowing the documents out in public.”
