“I asked for a car, I got a computer. How’s that for being born under a bad sign?”

ferris-b.jpgDown in Orange County, 18-year-old Omar Khan (“Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan”) has been charged with a whopping 69 felony counts tied to him breaking into his high school’s computers to change up his grades.

According to the DA and the Orange County Sheriff, Khan and fellow student Tanvir Singh committed their crimes between January and May 2008, breaking into the school on numerous times using a stolen key. The brilliant Khan also attempted to steal a teacher’s password to push his grades and those of 12 other students. All of this while both were exchanging text messages discussing their activities the whole time.

So now Khan (“Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan”) is facing charges of identity theft, computer fraud, second degree burglary and falsifyng public records, among other things. Sadly, there is no charge pending for half-assing his Ferris Bueller impression.
