ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A Department of Motor Vehicles employee in Albany was arrested for charging extra fees as a “side hustle” and accessing personal information of estranged family members, authorities said.
New York Inspector General Letizia Tagliafierro announced Friday that 53-year-old Wanda Turner was arraigned on charges of felony computer trespass and misdemeanor official misconduct.
According to Tagliafierro, Turner charged people $40 to $50 on top of legitimate DMV fees to provide documents they requested.
Turner also illegally accessed records of estranged family members and an ex-boyfriend, Tagliafierro said.
Information on an attorney who could speak for Turner wasn’t available.
