Last October, the 18-year-old from Glastonbury High School allegedly accessed the school’s database that students use to submit yearbook budgets, according to the record.
The student was charged on July 9 with two third-degree computer crimes for his alleged actions, according to the arrest record. CNN contacted his attorney, Mike Dwyer, but received no response immediately.
CNN has contacted Glastonbury High School and the parents association for feedback.
In an email to “students, parents, guardians and staff” dated May 26, Superintendent of Schools Alan Bookman and Glastonbury High School Principal Nancy Bean said the school had suspended the distribution of the yearbook and recalled the books that had been published. The school also conducted an internal review which was then forwarded to the Glastonbury police department for a criminal investigation, the email said.
“We deeply regret not having captured the performance of bigotry and vandalism before the yearbook was printed,” the message read. “We are reviewing and reviewing the procedures in our yearbook to collect and review future student submissions.”
He continued: “There is no place for any of this anywhere in our school system. We recognize that racism and privilege exist in our society … They are NOT just words. We have begun this critical work this year and we will continue to work on it for many years to come. ”
