ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage woman is spending two years in prison for violating federal medical privacy law by giving information on patients to the drug dealer who assaulted them.

KTVA-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1dIui5R) 33-year-old Stacy Laulu used her job at Providence Alaska Medical Center to pass 40-year-old Stuart Seugasala information about one man he shot and another he kidnapped and sexually assaulted with a curling iron.

Prosecutors say Laulu’s husband had a close relationship with Seugasala. They said she texted the drug dealer what the men told police and hospital staff about their injuries.

Seugasala was convicted and sentenced in those crimes, and Laulu was sentenced Friday to two 24-month concurrent prison terms for violating the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act.
