15 year old hacker steals data and gets caught…

The 15-year-old student is being charged as a juvenile, so police are not releasing his name. The charges against him are felony computer trespass, felony unlawful duplication, felony computer theft, and misdemeanor theft by unlawful taking. He has been released to his parents' custody, police said.

School officials maintain the student involved in the breaches didn’t do so for identity theft purposes, but rather were “motivated by an irresponsible interest in determining whether they could infiltrate the network and circumvent the safeguards.”

Below has more information on the matter:
