Former UCLA Medical Center Employee Pleads Guilty For Giving Tabloids Information

The lure of big bucks was enough for a former UCLA Medical Center employee to toss out ethics feeding information to the National Enquirer about celebs.

On Monday Lawanda Jackson, 49, plead guilty in U.S. District Court for violating federal medical privacy law for commercial purposes.

The felony could land Jackson in prison for 10 years with another three years of supervised release. The estimated $4,600 she made from the tabloid won’t put much of a dent in the $250,000 maximum fine she could be paying.

Jackson used her position as an administrative specialist to access the medical records of stars like Britney Spears, Maria Shriver and Farrah Fawcett.

Jackson had been an employee at UCLA hospitals for 32 years.
