Former Albany State University student Derrick Davis thought he could outsmart his professors by changing his grades. Davis worked part-time in the Information Technology Department while attending University and used his job to obtain access to the school's grading system.
In 2010, Davis changed four of his grades but the boost didn't go unnoticed by his professors. After an investigation was held on the matter, Davis admitted to how he learned his instructor's password and then accessed the school's system to change his grades. He was immediately expelled from the University.
Davis pleaded guilty to computer trespassing in the Dougherty County Superior Court on Monday and was sentenced to two years probation and a $2,000 fine. Summer school would have been the wiser option compared to the illegal grade change.
