By Catherine Varnum
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Action News obtained a list that shows every time a police officer abused their power to access a statewide database and look up your information.
Agencies across the state searched Jeffrey Gray's name 296 times. "I document public officials in public spaces," said Gray. Those agencies include the Jacksonville, Clay County and St. Johns County sheriffs offices. "I haven't committed a crime. I'm not sure how it could've been legit," said Gray.
