Officials: Ex-jockey agent logged in to racing computers

NEW YORK –  Authorities say a former jockey agent has been charged with illegally accessing the New York Racing Association's computers.

Law enforcers alleged Tuesday that Manuel "Mike" Gonzalez, of Oceanport, New Jersey, accessed the computer system 170 times over 15 months. They say he paid a NYRA (NY'-ruh) employee $100 a month for use of his logon and password.

Authorities say Gonzalez got information about track conditions, racehorses' health and horses in need of a jockey. They say he used the information to secure horses for his jockey.

Gonzalez is charged with 170 counts each of computer trespass and tampering with a sports contest. If convicted, he could face up to four years in prison.

Prosecutors say they don't know if Gonzalez has an attorney.

    If found guilty the industry should ban him forever.

    The employee who loaned his password also.
