Woman accused of police computer misuse to stand trial

Carlisle Crown Court

A WOMAN accused of police computer misuse and personal data disclosure while working for Cumbria Constabulary will stand trial later this year.

Genna Fowler, 25, pleaded not guilty to three charges when she appeared in front of a judge at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today (MON).

Two charges allege securing unauthorised access to computer material on different dates during May, 2019.

A third charge alleges “knowingly disclosing personal data without the consent of the controller” by Fowler. This is alleged to have occurred between 3rd May and 19th June last year.

Fowler, of Spittal Farm, Wigton, is now due to stand trial in front of a jury at the crown court in the week of 8th June this year.

It is estimated that hearing will last around two days.

In the meantime Fowler was granted unconditional bail byJudge Nicholas Barker, who also reminded her to assist her legal team with the production of a document which sets out her defence to the allegations she faces, and any issues she takes with the prosecution case.
