Steven R. Cordes wanted to help his girlfriend keep tabs on who her
teenage daughter was dating and hanging out with.
So Cordes -- director of a Kane County emergency dispatch agency --
searched confidential police databases and did criminal background checks
on a boyfriend and other friends.
But the searches were unauthorized -- and illegal. On Thursday the
44-year-old Lake in the Hills man on Thursday was sentenced to six months
in jail and placed on 30 months probation after he pleaded guilty to
official misconduct for running the searches between 2006 and 2008 while
he ran Quadcomm, a 911 dispatch center. He had earlier resigned his post
at the center.
Cordes did the searches -- including license plate checks and a background
check on one person -- because he wanted to help his girlfriend keep her
teenage daughter safe, Cordes. attorney said.
