July 28, 2012 – Mom Hacks Into School Computer To Change Her Kids Grades
This world is full of unimaginable happenings.
A 45 years old hacker mom identified as Catherine Venusto recently took matters into her own hands by hacking into her childrens’ school computer and changing their grades.
According to ABC News reports, Catherine who worked as an Administrative Officer from 2008 and 2011 at Northwestern Lehigh School District in Pennsylvania is currently facing 6 felony charges for hacking into the School’s computer system.
12 months before quitting her job, Catherine Venusto had been accused of changing her daughter’s failing grade to a medical exception. And in February, 2012, she was accused of changing her son’s 98 to a 99.
Catherine Venusto was arraigned this week on three counts of unlawful use of a computer and three counts of computer trespassing and altering data.
All six of those charges are third degree felonies. State police said she admitted to changing the grades, but thought her actions were merely unethical— not illegal.
According to District Attorney’s office spokeswoman Debbie Garlicki, Venusto could face up to 42 years in prison or a $90,000 fine if convicted.
This kind mom na wa o.
What a legacy!
