The school district issued this statement about Abram's arrest:

Mr. Antroy Abram, a former employee of the Jasper County School District, was arrested Wednesday by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and charged with first degree cyber crime. 

Mr. Abram previously worked with the Jasper County School District for nine years and at one time served as Director of Technology. He resigned from the district on Dec. 14, 2011.

The investigation began a few months ago due to the libraries in the district calling the district office to report they couldn't log on to their system. The district then discovered missing data, immediately turning all information concerning the matter over to the Hardeeville Police Department who in turn notified the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division. At this time, the district will have no further comment on the matter as the case is pending.
