ZiggyFishha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, Prosecutors in Orange County have filed 69 felony counts against 18 year-old Omar Khan. If convicted on all counts, the high school student would face 38 years in prison.Jun 21 03:38
ZiggyFishKhan is accused of breaking into the school's computer systems and changing his grades. Prosecutors say that Khan routinely accessed his transcript online and boosted his low or failing grades to "A's", along with altering the results of Advanced Placement tests and installing spyware which allowed him to remotely access the database at a later date.Jun 21 03:39
ZiggyFishAmong the counts being filed against Khan are 34 charges of altering a public record, six counts of burglary, seven counts of computer access and fraud and one felony count of conspiracy.Jun 21 03:40
ZiggyFishThough Khan had previously been caught cheating on tests, the school said that it was only made aware of the extent of the student's activities when he requested a copy of his official transcript while applying to the University of California, Berkeley.Jun 21 03:41
