BOSTON (AP) - A New Bedford man who hacked into corporate and law enforcement computers, and even hacked into a college’s system so he could change his grades, has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Cameron Lacroix was also sentenced Monday in federal court to three years’ probation. He pleaded guilty in June to charges of computer intrusion and access device fraud.

Prosecutors say the 25-year-old Lacroix obtained stolen credit data for 14,000 account holders. He also hacked into law enforcement computer systems containing sensitive information and hacked the email account of a local police chief.

Authorities say in 2012 and 2013 he hacked into computer systems at Bristol Community College, where he was a student, and changed grades for himself and two friends.

Lacroix expressed remorse in court.
