Cochise Co. workers lose jobs, some allegedly watched porn on county computers

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Ten workers in Cochise County were either fired or resigned after allegations they used county computers for unapproved purposes.

The workers are accused of using the computers to watch porn or download and watch shows from Netflix. This allegedly occurred while the workers were on the clock.

Supervisor Ann English issued the following statement:

"I think the employees were unaware their actions were being tracked and they did not use good judgment because they thought no one would see them. Cochise County is now taking action to shut down access to any sites the individual employee does not need to access for their job."

Tucson News Now has learned no one is facing criminal charges.

We reached out to the sheriff to ask what he's doing about his workers involved, but we haven't heard back.
