Information Fudge had been an FBI employee since 1988. Specifically, the indictment charges him with eight counts of exceeding authorized access to a government computer, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1030a2B&C and c2Bii and two counts of making false statements, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1001a2&3. If convicted on all charges, Fudge faces a statutory maximum sentence of 50 years imprisonment and a $2.5 million fine. U.S. Attorney Boyle said, "Fudges actions, as described in the indictment, make clear that he has absolutely no place in federal law enforcement. I commend the DOJ-OIG and the FBI for taking strong and appropriate action upon learning of his misdeeds. His law enforcement days are over." As an investigative analyst, Fudges duties included conducting database searches using the FBI computer system, serving subpoenas, analyzing telephone records, and generally assisting FBI agents in conducting criminal and administrative investigations. The FBI computer systems he accessed included the Automated Case Support system ACS, the National Crime Information Center NCIC, the Texas Crime Information Center TCIC, the Texas Law Enforcement Telecommunications System TLETS, and the FBI Network FBINET. He was authorized to access FBI computers and FBI computer systems and programs only for official business and "need to know."
