ALBANY, Ga. -- A former Albany State University student was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to changing his grades.
Derrick Davis pleaded guilty to four counts of computer trespass in Dougherty County Superior Court. He will spend 24 months on probation and pay a $2,000 fine, according to Georgia Attorney General's spokesperson Lauren Kane.
According to information presented in court, Davis was a student and worked in Albany State's IT department in December 2010, when he changed his grades in four classes. His professors noticed the changes and reported Davis to administrators, Kane said.
After confessing to changing his grades, Davis was expelled from Albany State.
