A State Department worker has been sentenced to a year of probation for illegally looking up passport applications of more than 70 celebrities and others.
Fifty-eight-year-old Susan Holloman had pleaded guilty in November to a single count of unauthorized computer access.
Holloman, of Washington, D.C., is among a small group of current or former State Department employees or contractors to plead guilty after a criminal investigation into passport file snooping.
Prosecutors say the passport files Busch accessed in 2007 included celebrities and their families, actors, professional athletes and musicians.
