Ohio's government watchdog says an employee at the state's health department circumvented computer security measures and improperly downloaded thousands of copyrighted movies, TV shows and comic books.
The findings are being forwarded to prosecutors.
Meyer's probe came after Viacom Inc. complained in March 2012 of detecting an improper download of "Big Time Rush - Season Two" from an Internet address registered to the state.
A health department spokesman said the employee remains on the job pending an administrative disciplinary review and any action from law enforcement.
