30-year-old Sebastian Shaw, a former employee of Appleton Harley Davidson, has been indicted by the Montgomery County Grand Jury after reportedly deleting company files and withholding social media logins after he was terminated in July. Shaw was hired to do marketing for the business and was terminated in late July. Court records allege that in apparent retaliation, he destroyed and damaged their internal computer system, customer files, and company emails, causing over $10,000 in losses to the company. The Grand Jury met on November 7, and Shaw was taken into custody on two felony counts of computer fraud and vandalism the following week.
Editorial Note: Shaw was formerly an employee of Scoop Media Group and Steen Publishing, but was terminated shortly after learning of the alleged actions.
Sebastian Xavier Shaw of Lintwood Drive in Clarksville, TN, was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on November 15, charged with felony computer offense and felony vandalism. He is free on a $40,000 bond.
