An investigation into unauthorized access to the Bucks County Community College computer network is uncovering a conspiracy to change student’s grades. The college contacted the Newtown Township Police in July of 2017 after finding someone had infiltrated the programs used for tracking student’s grades.
Investigators found New Hope resident Aleisha Morosco, 30, acquired the credentials of a faculty member and used them to change the grades of herself and several other students. New information has been discovered indicating Morosco obtained the faculty member’s credentials through Kelly Marryott, 37, of Yardley.
Marryott was an employee at a medical office and used her position to access the personal information of the faculty member. She then gave the information to Morosco, who then used it to carry out her crimes.
Both Morosco and Marryott have been arrested and charged with multiple crimes including unlawful use of computer, computer trespass, and identity theft, as well as conspiracy charges.
District Judge Mick Petrucci arraigned both women and released them on $40,000 unsecured bail.
