Lacroix, whose usernames reportedly included camo, cam0, camZero, and cmuNNY, had a string of hacks to his credit and convictions list beginning in 2014, including hacking Bristol Community College’s to change grades for himself and other students, hacking into a local police department, and hacking Twitter accounts for Jeep and Burger King.
Apparently, while on supervised release, he committed more crimes. Additional coverage can be found here: New Bedford Man Gets More Jail Time After Third Cybercrime
