A federal indictment alleges that over two days in November 2005, 
Danielle Duann illegally accessed and damaged LifeGift Organ Donation 
Center's database.

The agency recovers organs and tissue from the deceased for distribution 
in 109 Texas counties. Recipients live in a broad swath of the state 
including Houston, Fort Worth, Lubbock and Amarillo.

After Duann, 50, was fired as the agency's director of information 
technology, she is accused of accessing the system and issuing commands
