Governor Robert Bentley asked the FBI for assistance after finding that several state workers in the finance department had unauthorized access to Alabama's criminal justice database. The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency released letters today showing that Bentley also dismissed the state's chief information officer and placed another finance official on administrative leave. Bentley wrote in the June 10th letter to the FBI that he was concerned that some of the actions were "potentially criminal in nature." Alabama Law Enforcement Secretary Stan Stabler released the letter and the personnel actions today. Stabler said his agency had identified database security issues and raised those concerns to the Governor.
