Georgia Tech Student Who Hacked UGA Calendar Could Avoid Trial

Georgia Tech Student Hacked UGA Calendar

ATHENS, GA – UPDATE: The Georgia Tech student who hacked UGA’s computer system could avoid a trial completely. Ryan Pickren is accused of computer trespass after UGA’s online calendar was altered to say “Get Ass Kicked by GT [Georgia Tech]” when the Georgia Bulldogs were scheduled to play the Yellow Jackets in the college football regular season. Pickren filed a pre-trial diversion this morning during his arraignment. This means that Pickren will never go to trial if he completes a pre-trial diversion program.

GoFundMe page to Free Georgia Tech Student

Pickren’s brother Sage Pickren started a Gofundme page to raise funds to help pay his legal fees (http://www.gofundme.com/ji4xh4). Nearly $14,000 out of the $30,000 needed has been raised in the month that the page has been active. 

Reporter Aaron Jones was there and he will have the details from Pickren’s arraignment tonight at 5 p.m.
