A former student at California State University at San Marcos pleaded guilty to federal charges on Thursday in a case that accused him of stealing the identities and passwords of 745 students to rig a campus election, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. The student, Matthew Weaver, was one of two candidates running for president of the campus’s student council when the fraud was discovered. The council had to throw out the election results and start over. Mr. Weaver is scheduled to be sentenced in June. He could face up to 33 months in custody.
