ANCHORAGE- A former Anchorage police officer has pleaded guilty to using a police computer to illegally look up information about a woman he arrested on a drunken driving charge and later started seeing casually.

Mark Moeller pleaded guilty Monday to criminal use of a computer and misuse of confidential information.
He was not immediately sentenced, but the plea deal requires Moeller to relinquish his state law enforcement certification.
Police say Moeller used the Alaska Public Information Safety Information Network to run queries on a sister-in-law, as well as the woman he arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Moeller was hired in 2011 and resigned in February.
His attorney with the Office of Public Advocacy did not immediately return a call for comment Tuesday.
