NEWPORT BEACH -- A Tesoro High School senior was charged today with 
breaking into his high school in a plot to hack into the school computer 
system and change his grades to better his chances for college 
admission.

Omar Khan, 18, also allegedly changed grades for 12 other students and 
once broke into the locked office of a vice principal in an attempt to 
retrieve a test after he was caught cheating, according to a statement 
from the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

Khan, of Coto de Caza, is charged with nearly 70 felony counts, 
including altering public records, computer access and fraud, burglary, 
identity theft and conspiracy. He could be sentenced to more than 38 
years in prison if convicted.

Kahn allegedly broke into several rooms at Tesoro High School in Rancho 
Santa Margarita between Jan. 23 and May 20 late at night and on weekends 
to access school computers to change grades. He is accused of altering 
test scores from Advanced Placement classes and school records from 
previous semesters, often changing grades of "C," "D," or "F" to "A," 
according to the DA's statement.
