A former U.S. State Department administrative assistant was sentenced on Monday to one year probation and 100 hours of community service for illegally accessing the passport application files of more than 150 people, including celebrities, politicians and friends, authorities said. Dwayne Cross, 41, of Maryland admitted he accessed the documents out of curiosity. The files contained the applicant’s name, birth date and telephone number, among other data. Another former worker previously was sentenced in connection with the investigation. — DK
