Hacked grades = 20 years in jail?

"It's the stuff of movies such as War Games but two California men accused of hacking into a University database system to change their grades face up to 20 years imprisonment.

John Escalera, 29, and Gustavo Razo, 28, are charged (PDF) with conspiring together to increase their marks by manipulating California State University at Fresno's PeopleSoft-based database. The duo allegedly took advantage of Escalera's position as a help desk worker to pull off the hack."
