One Year in Jail:
a woman who works at a medical clinic
accesses her friend's sister-in-law's medical records (because the friend and sister-in-law are fighting) and finds out the sister-in-law has HIV/AIDS. The woman posts that info on her MySpace page. She's caught, fired, . . . and sentenced to 1 year in jail for "unauthorized computer access."
I feel sorry for the woman, but I do like the deterrent effect.
