Two people have been indicted in connection with a data breach at South Carolina's Department of Health and Human Services.
Attorney General Alan Wilson said Wednesday that the Richland County Grand Jury had indicted Christopher Lykes, Jr., on four counts of willful examination of private records by a public employee. Lykes and Toshia Yvette Latimer-Addison face a single count of criminal conspiracy.
Lykes faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted. Authorities say he compiled more than 228,000 Medicaid patients' personal information on a spreadsheet and sent it to his private email.
Latimer-Addison faces up to five years in prison. She's accused of helping Lykes.
It wasn't known if either person had attorneys.
