A Hall County Sheriff’s Office deputy was charged with computer invasion of privacy and violation of oath related to “unauthorized procurement of personal data for his own personal gain,” according to the sheriff’s office.

Michael Lusk, 49, of Cleveland was charged by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation following an investigation requested by the sheriff’s office.

“The charges stem from computer inquiries made by Lusk in early May which were not for official purposes,” Sgt. Kiley Sargent wrote in a news release.

Lusk surrendered himself to the White County Jail today after the GBI filed warrants with White County Superior Court Judge Murphy C. Miller.

Sargent said Lusk was terminated Thursday and had been employed with the sheriff’s office since 2004.
Lusk was released from the jail on a $10,000 bond.
