I go to a high school and 2 of my 8 teachers say im a hacker and part of this group called like anonymous or something like that. When class ended one of the teachers talked to me and said that I deleted a file of the computer. As of right know I no nothing about computers, I don't even own a computer. He said that I might get expelled or even go to jail. The season they said it's me is because the times line up I guess (I don't know about the time). I'm just trying too pass school and become a lawyer but I'm not sure what to do this might end it for me. Where should I go or what should I do? As of right know they can't take me to jail because all they have I think is a time of some sort. Is that a reasonable suspension for me to go to jail is because they have times?im still a minor. Ty
Times are evidence. The police will decide to arrest or not, then the prosecutor will decide whether to prosecute or not. As a former technology manager in a school district I used to hire students like those accused of what you are doing, instead of reporting them.... but it is their decision. They cannot suspend you without going through all the processes their school requires to do so, and you can appeal any suspensions.
A good lawyer will argue that this is not enough evidence, that a good hacker will pick someone like you to hack a computer remotely while that person is sitting at the computer (that is what hackers I ran into would have done to set up someone they didn't like), and if they don't have a way to track access remotely as well as just know who was sitting there that is not reasonable for a suspension.
Your parents (you if you are an adult) should line up a lawyer with that as a starting point and ask for a letter stating the above to go to the school.
But be careful - they MAY have such a procedure in place, though my experience is that cybersecurity is a very hit or miss thing in schools. A lawyer will know how to word such a letter so that your rights are preserved even if they do have security that tells them things were done by someone sitting at the keyboard. It has to be a lawyer licensed to practice in your state, so sadly I cannot help you on an official basis with real legal advice.
