United States of America v. Jason Needham

Federal Courthouse - Memphis, Tennessee

Case Number: 2:17-cr-20097-JTF

Judge: John T. Fowlkes, Jr.

Description: Memphis, TN - Arlington, Tennessee Man Pleads Guilty to Unauthorized Access of Former Employer’s Network

An Arlington, Tennessee man pleaded guilty to unauthorized access of his former employer’s network.

According to the indictment, Jason Needham, 45, co-owner of HNA Engineering, intentionally accessed the network of a competing engineering firm, Allen & Hoshall, without authorization, and used that access to view, download, and copy proprietary business information worth approximately $425,000.

In connection with his guilty plea, Needham admitted that over a nearly two-year period, he repeatedly accessed the servers of Allen & Hoshall, his former employer, to download digitally rendered engineering schematics and more than 100 PDF documents containing project proposals and budgetary documents. Needham also admitted to accessing, on hundreds of occasions, the email account of a former colleague at Allen & Hoshall, which provided Needham access to Allen & Hoshall’s marketing plans, project proposals, company fee structures, and the rotating account credentials for the company’s internal document-sharing system.

The FBI investigated the case.

Outcome: Guilty
