A central Ohio nurse will spend four months in prison following a sentencing hearing Thursday for hacking and distributing personal information from her supervisor.

Adriann Brierley, 37, of Buckeye Lake, was charged with one felony count of computer intrusion in 2008. 

Brierley pleaded guilty to the charge in October.

According to U.S. Attorney Carter Stewart, Brierley broke into her supervisor's password-protected personal e-mail, social networking and dating sites.

Brierley then copied her supervisor's personal information into a document which consisted of personal e-mails, photographs and a dating conversation her supervisor had been having.

Brierley sent this document to her supervisor's e-mail contacts, employer and co-workers.

In addition to a four-month prison sentence, Brierley will continue to be under court supervision for two years following her release from prison.
