Even the Dead Have No Secrets

9 months after she was beaten to death, Arkansas TV anchor Anne Pressly’s case put three people in federal court today — a physician, an ER coordinator, and a hospital billings clerk — charged with snooping through the murder victim’s personal medical files. The three pled guilty.

Arkansas Business reports:  “For the violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, each faces up to one year in prison, a fine of up to $50,000, or both. Sentencing has not been scheduled.”

Apparently, other hospital employees have been fired for snooping into Pressly’s records.
