Internet Cybercrime – People v. Sean M.

Sean was a third year law student who was accused of hacking into the law school’s email system to obtain test questions for his classes. He was charged with six felony counts, including computer access fraud and identity theft, and faced penalties up to 6 years in prison. After many months of work,  we ultimately resolved the case with a plea bargain that included an admission on two misdemeanor counts and a sentence of 120 hours of community service.
