A former employee of UCLA Medical Center has pleaded guilty to selling information from the medical records of celebrities and high-profile patients to the National Enquirer. Lawanda Jackson faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, and a $250,000 fine. Jackson worked as an administrative specialist at the UCLA hospitals for 32 years and in recent years began using her supervisor's password to access medical records inappropriately, authorities said.
