A former state employee with the state's home-elevation grant program has been indicted for allegedly removing homeowner data and then selling the protected information to his clients as a private elevation consultant.
The Louisiana Attorney General's Office says an East Baton Rouge Parish grand jury indicted 31-year-old Kurt Wiltshire, of New Orleans, on Tuesday on one count of unauthorized use of a movable.
Wiltshire worked for the federally financed state-run Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. It was not immediately known whether he was represented by an attorney.
The indictment comes after home elevation consultant Rickey Davis pleaded guilty to bribing state officials in the program in exchange for private homeowner information.
