‘Jeopardy’ Winner Gets Probation for Hacking Email at Adrian College
A seven-time 'Jeopardy' winner has been put on probation for hacking into the email accounts of other professors, students, and administrators at Adrian College.
Stephanie Jass logged into others' email accounts several times over a four-day period which led the college IT staff to reset everyone's password to the same temporary password.
Jass issued an apology as she appeared before a judge. "I am sorry for all the pain I have caused," she said. She'll be required to re-appear after serving one year of probation.
One professor told police she believed Jass downloaded and read others' email in order to gain leverage over them.
Jass, who taught history at the college, appeared on the TV game show 'Jeopardy' in 2014. She set a new record for female contestants, winning seven consecutive episodes.
