University of Kansas computer hacker granted probation, ordered to apologize to professors

Sara Shepherd reports:

A former University of Kansas student who hacked into the school’s computer system and changed his failing grades to A’s was granted probation for the resulting felony convictions. He also must write letters apologizing to the professors he fraudulently signed in as.

As the prosecutor and his defense attorney had requested in a plea agreement, Varun H. Sarja, 20, of Olathe received a year and a half probation, with an underlying 18-month prison sentence that he could be ordered to serve should he fail at probation.
