Colquitt County - 18-year old Jeremiah Mackenzie Brooks was caught by a teacher making changes on her computer. He admitted to changing a grade to have a better chance of passing the class.
Principal Bob Jones says this is an isolated incident. He says, "What we do in every student discipline case, we talk to the student, to the parents, to the teacher and based upon what we find is what we apply in terms of our disciplinary procedures."
Principal Jones would not say exactly how Brooks was disciplined, but he says he believes the punishment fits the offense.
