LINCOLN PARK – A 36-year old woman was charged with 30 felony counts after the Detroit Edison Public School Academy reported manipulated online student records.

Kristina M. Lee, formerly of Lincoln Park and former administrative assistant at the school, was recently charged in the 25th District Court and is out after posting a $50,000 personal recognizance bond.

She is charged with eight counts of using a computer to commit a crime with a maximum sentence of four years for each count; eight counts of unauthorized access on a computer, seven counts of using a computer to commit a crime with a maximum of two-year sentence for each charge and seven counts of attempted unauthorized access.

The alleged crimes occurred in late 2015.

A preliminary examination of the evidence against her was set for 9 a.m. Dec. 20 in 25th District Court.

Calls to Lee’s defense attorney, Krystal Lynn Tulacz, were not returned as of press time.
