>Ex-border guard sentenced to home confinement

A former U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer from Akron who accessed a government computer to obtain information about a family member was sentenced Tuesday to five months in a Buffalo halfway house and five months of home confinement, U.S. Attorney Terrance P. Flynn said.

Kelly Bossinger, 42, was convicted in July by a federal jury of unauthorized access of a government computer, conspiracy and making a false statement.

The jury found Bossinger used other Customs officers to unlawfully access the computer to obtain confidential law enforcement information about a family member who was the subject of a drug investigation, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory L. Brown.

She was charged with conspiracy and making a false statement because she tried to cover up the wrongdoing. Bossinger was sentenced before U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.
