May 31, 2010

UCLA researcher, Huping Zhou, snooped patient records after being told he was going to be fired.

He looked up records of his supervisor and co-workers, and eventually expanded the snooping to celebrities. In all, 323 records were compromised.

Zhou pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four months in jail, according to the U.S. District Attorney’s Office.
