Possible breach found in immigrant list probe

Possible breach found in immigrant list probe

A spokeswoman for Utah Gov. Gary Herbert says investigators have found evidence that suggests a state database was breached to create a list of 1,300 purported illegal immigrants that has been circulating around the state.
Herbert spokeswoman Angie Welling says the information will likely be turned over to the Utah attorney general's office by Monday.
The list, including names and federal identification numbers, was anonymously mailed to news media, law enforcement and other government officials. It demands that those on the list be deported, although some named on the list say they are in the country legally.
Intentionally releasing a private record in Utah is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail. If the record was stolen, it could be prosecuted as a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
