Iowa Wrestler Caught Forging Grades
A former University of Iowa wrestler has been caught grappling with the grade book, and could now face a punishment as tough as any he faced on the mat.
On Monday, according to CBS2, the United States attorney's office announced charges against Trevor J. Graves, who last wrestled for Iowa in the 2015-2016 season, after Graves reportedly pled guilty to "transmission of a command to damage a protected computer." In short, he hacked into the school's computer system to obtain the usernames and passwords of professors to change grades for himself and several of his friends. It's a federal offense that carries a felony charge against him.
Graves admitted to committing the fraud for a period of time between March 7, 2015 and November 15, 2016. Reports say he could face up to 10 years in prison for the crime. His sentencing will take place this August 23.
