EUGENE, Ore. – A psychiatric evaluation has been ordered for a 16-year-old North Eugene High School who pleaded guilty of hacking into his school district's computer system and then posting the confidential information of hundreds of students on a webpage.
The Eugene Register-Guard reports that the student pleaded guilty Thursday to a felony computer crime for June hacking event.
A second computer crime count against the student was dismissed under a plea deal, which requires the student to show school officials and Eugene police "what he did and how he did it."
Soon after posting the data on June 9, the boy sent taunting messages to Eugene schools Superintendent Sheldon Berman, to the district's then-technology director and to its network security specialist, directing them to the webpage of an unsuspecting student.
