A San Luis Obispo County Superior Court clerk was arrested on charges he was selling information to criminal defendants over a three-month period this year.
Sheriff’s detectives arrested Juvenal Marin, 24, of Santa Maria after an undercover narcotics officer purchased court information from him, according to Undersheriff Steve Bolts.
Detectives served search warrants on Marin’s home as well as portions of the clerk’s offices in San Luis Obispo. Detectives arrested Marin at the San Luis Obispo Courthouse on Sept. 3 at 9:28 a.m. because of accusations that he had unauthorized access to state computers and information about criminal cases.
Marin has been released on $10,000 bail.
