Hello all,

If a 17 years old student plead guilty to a charge of hacking, unauthorized activities of accessing computer materials, will he/she be sentenced to imprisonment?

Thank You.

There are too many factors to consider here to give any sort of direct answer to that.

The local laws of the country, state, the region will vary greatly. It'll likely also depend on the specific circumstances and motives. Was he hacking into his teacher's computer to steal answers to an upcoming test or was he trying to hack with intent to steal money or commit identity theft? Those two scenarios would be treated very differently most places.

syafiqah, may I ask how you found this forum? We often see new users from Malaysia who have similar questions like you have and I am curious, where all the users from Malaysia come from.

regards,
Robin

Hai Bunnysniper. Act, i just randomly search it on the web and found this forum.This forum is quite interesting. Furthermore, im in the midst of doing some research regarding cyber forensic. From this forum, i can gather lots of information that useful for me. Besides that, I also want to increase some awareness about cyber forensic in my country.

It is much appreciated if you could share your opinion regarding this matter.

Thanks.

Let say if that student has intention to commit for identity theft, is he will be charge for imprisonment? What about stealing answer for test? what is the punishment? and is there any law/act regarding juvenile crime (specifically cyber crime) in your country?

Thank You!

Hello

In the United States, intent can be important in determining legal outcomes.

For example, did your hypothetical 17 year old student intend to cause significant harm to another party?

Hello UnallocatedClusters.

Thanks for your reply..For a case that has intend to harm another party, what type of punishment that he will get? Is there is a law/act in United States related with cyber crime but specifically for juvenile case or this case will be charge under same case as adult? Because from my study, there are so many law/ act related with cyber crime in United States.

Thanks.

It seems to me like the usual "vague" and "otiose" question, moreover it is a kind of "legal" (as opposed to "digital forensics") question, most probably not suited (even if it was actually somehow better defined) to this forum.

Anyway, start from
https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/part-IV/chapter-403#
and
https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1030
