ATLANTA — An Idaho man faces federal charges after authorities say he hacked into the computers of a Georgia city and Atlanta area medical clinics.

According to a news release from the U.S. attorney’s office in Atlanta, Robert Purbeck — who used online aliases Lifelock and Studmaster — was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury in Georgia. He’s charged with computer fraud and abuse, access device fraud and wire fraud.
