HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) _ Two Long Island students were charged with
illegally accessing a high school psychologist's computer and
tampering with other students' psychological evaluations, officials

Christopher Kabacinski, 18, and Ryan Webb, 16, both students at Carle
Place High School, allegedly learned the psychologist's password and
used it to log on to the school's computer network.

Kabacinski then installed software on the network that allowed him to
transfer dozens of student psychological profiles to his home computer
between September and December 2003, Nassau County District Attorney
Denis Dillon said Tuesday.

Kabacinski was arraigned on charges of computer trespass,
fourth-degree computer tampering and unauthorized use of a computer,
Dillon said. He faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

Webb was charged with unauthorized use of a computer.
