Student to be Sentenced in FAMU Grade Changing Scandal

Monday 9.21.09 10:30am

A FAMU student convicted in a mass grade changing scandal is set to be sentenced this afternoon.

Marcus Barrington was found guilty of computer fraud and identity theft in March.

He and friends Lawrence Secrease and Christopher Jacquette are accused of hacking into FAMU's computer system back in 2007 and changing hundreds of grades, and even some students' residency status.

Secrease and Jacquette are already serving 22 month sentences in federal prison and Barrington is likely to face even more time because he did not admit to his role in the scheme.

Sentencing is set for 1:30 this afternoon at Tallahassee's Federal Courthouse.
