Former FAMU Student Gets 22 Months For Hacking

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A former student has been sentenced to
22 months in prison for hacking Florida A&M University computers to
change the grades of about 90 students so they could qualify for
financial aid.

Christopher Jacquette, 29, and two other students also changed the residency of some out-of-state students so they could pay lower
tuition.

Jacquette was sentenced Tuesday in federal court. He had pleaded guilty to aggravated identity theft, unauthorized access of a protected computer, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and unauthorized access to a computer.

A second defendant also pleaded guilty and the third was convicted by a jury. They have not yet been sentenced.
