Madre e figlia accusate di aver accesso agli account degli studenti per manipolare il voto del tribunale per il ritorno a casa

Una madre e una figlia a Pensacola, Florida, sono stati accusati di aver manipolato un'elezione del tribunale per il ritorno a casa delle scuole superiori accedendo agli account senza autorizzazione, le autorità hanno detto lunedì.

Laura Rose Carroll, 50, was arrested Monday and booked into the Escambia County Jail with a bond of $ 8,500, il Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) ha detto in un comunicato stampa. Her 17-year-old daughter was taken into custody and transferred to the Escambia Regional Juvenile Detention Center, ha detto.
When reached by CNN, a man identifying himself as Carroll’s husband, disse, “We have no comment right now. Our lawyers told us not to speak and we will have our day in court.
      CNN has reached out to the Escambia County School District per un commento.
        The FDLE said it was contacted in November 2020 by the Escambia County School District over allegations of unauthorized access to hundreds of student accounts.
          The release says investigators found Carroll, an assistant principal at Bellview Elementary, and her daughter, a student at Tate High used Carroll’s district-level access to enter accounts, where hundreds of fraudulent votes were cast for the Taft homecoming court. The votes were flagged as fraudulent when 117 votes allegedly originated from the same IP address within a short period of time. Authorities reported that FDLE agents found evidence of unauthorized access linked to Carroll’s cellphone as well as home computers.
          Investigators said they found almost 250 fraudulently cast votes for the homecoming court.
          Multiple students reported that Carroll’s daughter described using her mother’s account to cast votes,” diceva la dichiarazione.
            The investigation also found that beginning August 2019, Carroll’s account allegedly accessed 372 high school records and 339 of those belonged to students at Tate, the FDLE release said.
            Carroll and her daughter were each charged with offenses against users of computers, computer systems, computer networks and electronic devices; unlawful use of a two-way communications device; criminal use of personally identifiable information; and conspiracy to commit these offenses, ha detto il comunicato. All but the conspiracy charge are listed as third-degree felonies.
