A Gold Coast police officer is facing computer hacker charges after he allegedly snooped the personal details of netball star Laura Geitz, the Courier Mail reports.
Officer Stephen Patrick Wright is accused of accessing the Queensland Police Service database to read the personal files of 29-year-old Laura Geitz and more than a dozen others.
The 40-year-old is believed to have accessed the service without consent on 80 separate occasions between April and October last year.
Geitz is currently taking a break from sport as she expects her first child. She has captained the Queensland Firebirds and the Australian Diamonds and is regarded as of one Australian netball’s most successful players.
According to the Courier Mail, Geitz is aware of the allegations against Wright but does not wish to comment.
Wright was stood down from official duties in December while the case is ongoing. His lawyer is understood to be disputing several details.
