West Ashley student arrested for hacking into faculty email

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - A 15-year-old student was arrested and suspended after authorities say he may have unlawfully accessed two faculty member email accounts.

The Charleston Police Department say they were called to the West Ashley High School last Friday after the school's IT department notified school officials of a breach.

According to authorities, the student will be recommended to the district's office of student placement.

Officials say that the student may or may not return to West Ashley High School when the suspension is over.
