2 former Florida Hospital employees allegedly stole, sold patient records

Two former employees at Orlando-based Florida Hospital, who were tasked with releasing patients' personal information for medical and business needs, allegedly stole and sold an undisclosed number of patient records between January 2012 and May 2014, reports WFTV.

The two ex-employees, Tanganica Corbett and Kevin Weaver, have been indicted in a federal case. Prosecutors claim the pair accessed and sold patient records for personal gain with malicious intent.

The two employees' illegal activity began in January 2012 and lasted two years, according to court filings. Both employees left their jobs in May 2014.

The hospital declined to comment on the pending lawsuit and did not confirm how many patients were affected.
