A contestant who set a historic record during her seven-game run on “Jeopardy!” is facing up to five years in prison.
MLive.com reports that Stephanie June Jass, 47, was charged with two felonies following an investigation by the Michigan State Police Cyber Command Center after authorities received word that the former Adrian College history professor may have illegally hacked into the email accounts of other people at the school.
After months spent conducting a “forensic examination of the digital evidence,” authorities went forward, charging her with “unauthorized access of email accounts” and using a computer to commit a crime.
The first charge alone carries with it a potential for five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Michigan State Police haven’t said whose email accounts were allegedly accessed and why.
