RALEIGH -- Illegally accessing the Wake County Register of Deeds work email account landed a former county employee in jail today.

Nilesh Kumar R. Tailor, 39, Apex, a former system administrator in the Register of Deeds office, was arrested by the State Bureau of Investigation this afternoon on 13 counts of accessing government computers. He worked for Laura Riddick for almost four years before he was fired from that job on November 3.
