TOWNSHIP, Florida (WKRG) – Local teenager caught rigging a ride home now faces more serious consequences.
Emily Grover, 18, will be prosecuted as an adult, according to the Pensacola district attorney’s office.
Grover is charged alongside her mother Laura Carroll, former vice-principal of Bellview Elementary School, in the Tate High School Homecoming hack case.
In March, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement announced that Carroll and Grover had been arrested and charged with several crimes, relating to the illegal use of a computer and personal information.
FDLE says the mother-daughter duo hacked students’ FOCUS accounts and placed hundreds of fraudulent votes in the Come Home election.
Grover won the reunion queen.
At the time, Grover was charged as a minor, but since she is now 18, she will face a criminal court case.
Grover was taken to Escambia County Jail on April 29 and released on $ 2,000 bail about an hour later. She is expected to return to court on March 14.
Carroll posted $ 6,000 bail upon his initial arrest on March 15. She is expected to return to court on July 21 for a file hearing.
