Teen Accused Of Computer Hacking In Retaliation To Closing Of Facebook Account

A resident reported that her son, a 13-year-old male, allegedly hacked into her corporate computer account and had changed all her passwords which would prevent her from accessing any information. She was told by her son that he had hacked into her accounts in retaliation to her closing out his Facebook account and cell phone due to disciplinary problems that she has been having with him lately.

The victim was advised of complaint procedures and was advised that the matter would be referred to the Juvenile Bureau for follow up investigation.

The juvenile could be subject to 2C:20-25 (computer criminal activity) and 2C: 20-31 (wrongful access).
