FBI Agent Charged

MANHATTAN (CN) - An FBI agent is charged with exceeding his authorization to access sensitive data about law enforcement. The FBI said agent William Shirk, 37, called up a database after he was pulled from a case and contacted an informant to tell him that the FBI was investigating him for drugs and money laundering. "Shirk also told the informant not to worry because Shirk had taken care of the investigation," federal prosecutors said in a statement.
