Prosecutors say that on Nov. 15, 2016, Johnson was working for Veterans Affairs Department when she looked up, without authorization, the health information of five co-workers. Prosecutors say she did not share the information, but noted that merely viewing it is a violation of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
