UWA Officer Arrested

A University of West Alabama campus security officer has been arrested.

44-year-old William Dale Flowers of York turned himself in to authorities Monday.

Flowers is charged with the alleged misuse of confidential law enforcement data.

Flowers was recently indicted for nine counts of obtaining criminal offender information under false pretenses.

If found guilty on all charges, he could face more than 40 years in prison.

Shortly after being arrested, Flowers was released from the Sumter County Jail on $20,000 bond.

    I would like to say that Patty does not know William, she is the one that lies and stabbs people in the back. She needs to sweep aroung her own door step before see if someone elses is dirty. Her and her outlaw husband both.

    I know William much better than you will ever know the REAL WILLIAM and Call me what you want..Me and the rest of my Family know the truth . Just tell William to stop lying and let the truth come out he hid this even from his wife for 2 years and still continues to hide things . come on why do people hide things or lie about them? and as for my opinion you are not worth the space you take up by existing.. I spoke with acjis and the Attorney General`s office .. I know facts not opinion. and if Jeff Hood was the root of all evil where is he now Facing nine felonies?? Get Over wrong is wrong no matter who you are...

    first off i want to respond to patty..i think u are a sorry excuse for a sister. i personally know this family and who needs enemies with family like u. AND as far as the rest..i am SSSOOO for sure that there is more to this story. i believe in william and that he wouldn't do anything to intentionally hurt someone. also as a uwa alumni, i know that jeff hood did try to sweep campus crimes under the rug. there are police officers who try to use their position to gain power over others or for personal gain but i do not believe william is one of those. this is my opinion and u don't have to agree with it, just respect that it is mine!

    I worked with William alot of years, and I can say I know him pretty well, and I don't think at the onset William knew that this was wrong. This was a new computer system and it gave the local law enforcement officer another tool in doing his job, I think his intent was not criminal, but just putting names into the system to see what was there. The information he veiwed was of public record that anyone with 50.00 credit card could find out with an internet names check, but again I don't think when were given instructions on how the system worked William was paying attention. What he did was wrong, we have rules in place for a very good reason and if you brake those rules then you have to pay. I don't doult for a second he will be judged fair. I wish him good luck to him and his family.

    Cant call him as it turns out he thinks because he wears a gun and badge that he is better than everyone imagine that !! Family members have spoken to him and he continues to lie about circumstances You have no idea what kind of sisterI am .. I am a firm believer in right is right and wrong is wrong no matter who it is and police officers who think they are above the law are wrong period!!! I agree with the Alabama attorney general`s office on this matter it is time for the bad cops to go!!You have your reason to stand behind him and I have my reason not to stand behind him I am a grown woman who knows right from wrong .He hid alot of information from his family for a very long time (only thinking of himself) why if I had things to work out with him would I even want to He has issue with himself he needs to work on first and foremost.
