No charges will be filed against an employee who installed suspicious 
programs on computers in the auditor=E2=80=99s office in Clark County.

In an e-mail, prosecutor Steve Stewart said the results of a sheriff=E2=80=99s 
department investigation was turned over to him Tuesday.

=E2=80=9CI agree with [Sheriff Danny Rodden=E2=80=99s] assessment that while the actions 
may have been a violation of county policy, they do not constitute a 
crime and no criminal charges will be filed,=E2=80=9D Stewart said.

Two programs =E2=80=94Cane & Abel and LCP =E2=80=94 were found on the computers. The 
programs can be used to breach security and discover user passwords on 
the county=E2=80=99s network, county systems administrator Matt Dyer previously 
wrote in an e-mail to commissioners.

Rodden conducted the investigation over the last two weeks and turned it 
over to the prosecutor as well as county Commissioner Ed Meyer.

=E2=80=9CNothing was compromised and our safeguards worked,=E2=80=9D Meyer said.
