Forensic computer expert charged with crime

Byron G. Gorman failed forensic computer training with a basic wrong approach, according to federal prosecutors.

The now former federal employee who was training at a computer forensics lab in Kansas City was indicted last week for fraud.

Gorman, 50, of St. Joseph, faces six counts for a scheme to avoid paying his medical bills, federal prosecutors said Friday.

Also from their media release on indictment evidence:

Gorman worked as an information technology specialist in training for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of Inspector General, posted at the regional computer forensics laboratory in Kansas City that is affiliated with the FBI.

While executing a search warrant at a business, he took five blank postal service money order receipts to use for his defense against a medical center that had sued him for medical bills.

He filled out the stolen forms to make it appear he had paid the center.

He used that and other fraudulent documents to sue his creditors. He also stole identities of several people by forging their signatures on the documents.

He is charged with one count of mail fraud, two counts of wire fraud and three counts of aggravated identity theft.
