Mom Arrested for Raising Grades

You are, no doubt, familiar with the term "helicopter parents," the ones who hover over their children, helping them out, and making sure they never fail at anything. Well, it looks like doing your child's homework for him is already old school. A mom in Pennsylvania raised the bar for this sort of behavior by hacking into the school's computer system to raise her two kids' grades.
Catherine Venusto, 45, of New Tripoli, worked for the Northwestern Lehigh School District from 2008 through April 2011 and has at least two children in the district, according to the District Attorney's office.

She has been accused of changing her daughter's failing grade from an F to an M for "medical" in June 2010, and then changing her son's 98 to a 99 in February 2012, nearly a year after she quit her job as an administrative office secretary to work at another school district.

Venusto is now charged with six counts of computer and security crimes. She could face up to seven years plus a steep fine -on each count. Link -via Time Newsfeed
