ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A 22-year-old student is accused of sneaking into a building and illegally logging into a University of Central Florida grading system to change his failing grade to a B.
Sami Ammar turned himself in at the Orange County Jail in Orlando on Wednesday and now faces a felony charge of accessing a computer without authorization.
His father declined to talk to the Orlando Sentinel, saying only that the charge is "an allegation."
UCF professor Chung Young Chan became suspicious when he got a confirmation from a program he uses to log grades on May 4. He checked the grades and saw Ammar suddenly had a B instead of an F in the Electronics I class.
University police later identified Ammar on surveillance video at the Mathematical Sciences Building.
