Student Headed to Prison in FAMU Grade Change Scheme

One of the FAMU students who plead guilty in a mass grade changing scheme is now on his way to prison.

29 year old Christopher Jacquette was sentenced Tuesday to 22 months in federal prison.

He and two other students hacked into FAMU's computer system and changed hundreds of grades, and even some students' residency status, back in the fall of 2007.

Jacquette plead guilty to identity theft, conspiracy and more.

Co-defendants Lawrence Secrease and Marcus Barrington have yet to be sentenced.

Both Barrington's attorney and the federal prosecutor in the case say Barrington could face substantially more time behind bars because he did not admit to his role in the scheme.
