An individual purchased a used computer and memory stick from a pawn shop. He discovered sensitive information on the computer and traced it to the law office of a Texas attorney who no longer practices law. The attorney, Aaron Pena, Jr., is now a Texas State Representative. His spokesperson told news sources that the computer's hard drive had been wiped before the machine was donated to charity. The news team visited other pawn shops and found several other used computers which also contained sensitive personal information.
