Former high school secretary Catherine Venusto is looking at seven years of prison for using her access to the schools computers to change her own kid’s grades.  Prosecutors say she admitted to hacking into the Northwestern Lehigh School District’s grading database more than a hundred times and peeking into personnel files and e-mails almost 13,000 times.

Venusto admitted to changing her sons grades the most, giving him a boost from 96 and 98 up to 99, and changing her daughter’s failing grade to a medical explanation.

Venusto had worked in the district’s administration building for six years and admitted to using the superintendent’s access codes even after leaving in April 2011.

She pleaded guilty to two felony counts of unlawful use of a computer along with computer trespass and will be sentenced next month.
