From January to May, Khan apparently used a stolen login and password to get into the grading system and change his C, D, and F grades to As.

On top of that, he changed the grades of 12 other students, and sent out e-mail copies of tests and answer keys to friends.

Khan got caught when he requested an official school transcript to get into college.

In total, he has been charged with 69 felonies.

The charged include 24 felony counts of altering public record, 11 felony counts of stealing and secreting public records, 7 counts of illegal computer access and fraud, 6 felony counts of burglary, 4 felony counts of ID theft, and 3 felony counts of altering book of records.

Since his parents have refused to bail him out, he is waiting in jail and faces 38-years in jail.
