Student Charged: iPod used as Criminal Tool

An Ohio high school student faces charges of hacking into school computers and downloading student and staff personnel files to an iPod. Local law enforcement authorities have charged the student with possession of a criminal tool. That would be no misdemeanor feat but a felony charge.

The actions took place at Clay High School in Oregon City, Ohio. The student, who has no previous criminal record, has since withdrew from the school.

The student apparently accessed the staff personnel files and then shared his actions with another student. A staff member overheard the students’ conversation, inquired into the particulars of it, and confiscated the iPod that was used to initiate the hack. The alleged perpetrator has denied the charges.

The investigation is ongoing, and an initial hearing has yet to be scheduled. Meanwhile, school officials are busy upgrading their network security.
