The Information Commissioner was successful in its prosecution of Andrew Minty, Jamie Leong and Michelle Craddock whom all pleaded guilty to Conspiracy to commit section 55 Data Protection Act offences before Winchester Crown Court.

The three were at various times employed by the data controller Enterprise Rent A Car and personal data was unlawfully obtained from Enterprise’s systems and passed to claims management companies to pursue personal injury claims. The conspiracy involved the obtaining of tens of thousands of records over a 2.5 year period and followed civil proceedings in which the defendants had paid the data controller damages.
