Painter seeks to get federal indictment dismissed

Posted: Updated:

The state's former commissioner for Alcohol and Tobacco Control, seeking to have his federal computer fraud indictment dismissed, says state investigators destroyed computer files on equipment removed from his office.

The Advocate reports Murphy Painter said Tuesday the Louisiana Office of Inspector General did not properly secure his office computer on Aug. 13, 2010, the day his state career ended. He also contends evidence favorable to him was removed from his computer while in OIG's possession.

His jury trial is scheduled for Dec. 9 in the Baton Rouge court of U.S. District Judge James J. Brady.

Painter was indicted by a federal grand jury in May 2012 for computer fraud in connection with his alleged use of law enforcement databases for personal reasons.
