Former doctor’s office aide accused of computer trespassing after getting fired in Alexandria

Alexandria Police are investigating a former employee at a doctor’s office in the West End, who is suspected of computer trespassing after allegedly changing his computer passwords after getting fired.

The former employee, who was an aide at the office, was fired on September 17 for “failing to adequately perform her job,” and was escorted out by Alexandria Police after becoming “irate” and “disorderly,” police reported in a search warrant.

Three days later, the doctor wasn’t able to log into his Google account. He contacted the company, and found that the recovery account for his email belonged to the former employee.

Police then tried to contact the employee multiple times unsuccessfully. The crime is a Class 1 misdemeanor, but if damages are estimated at more than $1,000 it is a Class 6 felony. The former employee has not been charged.
