Snooping Merseyside Police sergeant to face misconduct hearing

Luke Traynor reports:

A police sergeant was caught snooping on the force computers over an eight-year period and could now be sacked.

John Sabatina was convicted of accessing information he was not entitled to view while working for Merseyside Police.

The 49-year-old was found guilty of an offence under the Computer Misuse Act and Data Protection Act at a two-day trial at Preston Magistrates Court in February, it has emerged.

He was fined £1,200 and ordered to pay £2,050 costs.

If the story sounds familiar, it may be because just a few months ago, this site noted another case of snooping by a Merseyside Police employee. That employee was fired.
