Texas teen hacker faces 95 years in Yale break-in

A teenage Texas hacker using an obsolescent personal computer and a telephone allegedly broke into Yale University’s computer system in 2000 from his bedroom, and now faces up to 95 years in prison. Jason Jarrell, now 19, who lives with his mother in a town outside Dallas, appeared in Superior Court here Thursday. He is scheduled to be arraigned April 22 on six counts of computer crime. Jarrell is accused of tapping into computers at the Bass Laboratory Nuclear Magnetic Resonance System, the Child Study Center, the Wright Nuclear Structure Laboratory, the School of Management, Information Technology Services, and the Engineering Robotics Laboratory. He was 16 at the time. Damage is estimated to be at least $150,000, based on the time the computers were down and the hours of work necessary to clean and rejuvenate the systems. Full Story
