Resident Suspected of Altering Performance Records

Dr. Eric George Batterson of the University of Michigan Health System is accused of accessing computers without authorization to alter his performance records.

Batterson allegedly used a program that tracks the typing of a computer's user. He used this information to obtain passwords for computers and e-mail accounts so he could alter his performance records and lower the performance records of his colleagues. Batterson's activities were discovered when employees realized that their computers and e-mails had been accessed without their permission.

A preliminary court hearing is scheduled for Sept. 29. Batterson is charged with "nine counts each of unauthorized access of computers and using computers to commit a crime, as well as one count of possessing a Taser."
