A former Montgomery County Police officer pleaded guilty Wednesday to obtaining unauthorized information from government computers for her personal benefit.

Delores Culmer, 37, of Silver Spring faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when she is sentenced on June 13.

According to her guilty plea, Culmer used her police powers to access law enforcement databases to obtain unauthorized information at least 20 times between August 2008 and September 2009.

Authorities said she accessed the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) database, as well as the Maryland Interagency Law Enforcement System (MILES) database, to conduct wanted-persons checks on her boyfriend, a person with whom her sister was having a dispute, and a friend of Culmer’s boyfriend.

Culmer also performed unauthorized registered motor vehicle checks on Culmer’s boyfriend’s brother and a person with whom Culmer’s boyfriend was having a dispute.
