Patient information stolen at John Hopkins

A John Hopkins employee has pled guilty to aggravated identity theft for stealing patients' information. Michelle Courtney Johnson, 31, worked as a patient services coordinator at Johns Hopkins. She has admitted to stealing patients' personal identifiers and selling them to her co-defendant Shanell Bowser. Bowser then allegedly used the information to open credit cards, using those cards to buy electronics, clothes and withdraw cash.

Johnson also faces charges of conspiracy to commit bank fraud, to which she also plead guilty. Bowser has also plead guilty. Both are to be sentenced at a later date.
