Mom Hacks School Computer To Change Kids’ Grades – Dumb Criminal Of The Day
I think most parents want their kids to get good grades, and I had assumed that most parents wanted their kids to earn those grades.
But I stand corrected as a Pennsylvania mother is accused of hacking into her kids’ school computer system to change their grades.
According to UPI, this mom was actually a former employee of the school district in question. She allegedly used the superintendent’s login and passwords to view district emails and personnel files and to alter her own children’s grades.
She was charged with three counts each of unlawful use of a computer and computer trespassing, all of which are felonies.
Court records indicated her daughter went from a failing grade to a "medical exception" while her son's grade of 98 percent climbed a point to 99 percent.
I bet her son is furious. He presumably worked hard to earn the 98%, and she hacked in to up it to a 99%?!
Way to set a good example for your kids lady.
