Florida College Students Charged with Hacking

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Three Florida A&M University students
are facing federal charges of hacking the school's computer system.

A five-count indictment released Tuesday accused them of
changing the grades of about 90 students, including raising 114 F's
to A's. They also allegedly changed the residency of out-of-state
students to in-state to reduce their tuition.

Neither the FBI nor the U.S. marshal's offices in Tallahassee
had any information to indicate if they had been arrested yet or if
they had legal representation.

Marcus Barrington, 23; Cristopher Jacquette, 27, and Lawrence
Secrease, 22, were charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and
unauthorized computer access, identity theft and unauthorized
computer access.
