Dwight Matthews Pleads Guilty To Altering Computer Records At Juvenile Detention Facility

Dwight Matthews
Natrona County Sheriff’s Office

A Casper man and former employee of a juvenile detention facility, has found himself on the other side of the law.

Twenty-three year old Dwight Matthews has pleaded guilty to one felony count of crimes against intellectual properties, and one misdemeanor count of crimes against computer equipment or supplies and interruption or impairment of governmental operations or public services.

Investigators with the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office say in February, someone had remotely accessed the computer system at the Natrona County Juvenile Detention Facility, and made changes to several accounts of inmates.

Upon tracing the computer’s IP address, it was discovered that Matthews was the perpetrator, and the Director of Operations at the JDC said Matthews was a long term employee and knew how to access the system.

When interviewed, Matthews admitted to what he did, and said he logged in as a supervisor that he was having problems with at that time.

As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek a 20-day jail sentence for the misdemeanor charge, and then first time offender status for the felony charge.

If Matthews completes one-to-five years of probation, the felony conviction will be cleared from his record.

Matthews is free on $10,000 bond and will be sentenced at a later date.
