911 dispatcher arrested for call recording

A West Virginia 911 dispatcher has been arrested on charges that she improperly used the county's emergency phone system. Casey Morgan Buckhannon was arraigned Thursday evening in Upshur County and released on $25,000 bond.

Morgan was charged with obstructing an officer and improper use of the 911 system. According to the criminal complaint, in September of 2007, Morgan allegedly used the emergency phone system to record a conversation between a law enforcement officer and a citizen upon the request of that citizen.

The complaint says that recording was to be given to a CBS affiliate in Clarksburg. It's not known what that conversation was about. (Info from The State Journal)
