    I made an account just to ask this question.

    So, I may be going to jail soon. I didnt do anything wrong, I just made a mistake. Here is what happened.

    I was sitting in AP Physics C, and we got to the library for some Momentum research. Turns out, I have had this crush on a girl for the longest time. I end up sitting in the spot she used last period. She left everything open, must have been in a hurry. One thing I noticed was that she left her Yahoo account open in the other tab. I thought it would be cute to send her an e-mail from herself stating a time and a location and then writing "from, secret admirer". I was planning on getting a nice bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates for her and leaving them at the location at the time.

    I sent the e-mail to herself, and I did not hear anything from her for about 2 days. It was from one of MY friends that I heard that she was very freaked out and did not take nicely to this message at all.

    So now she may call the police, and I might go to jail for apparently violating her privacy.

    Now about the ROTC scholarship. I have applied only for the Army ROTC scholarship, and I really need it. Will this matter get in the way? I already applied, so can they see it?

    CAN it get in the way? Emphatically yes. WILL it?
    I don't think anyone here can say. It depends on how it all plays out.

    Tampering with a computer can be a serious crime, tanatamount to identity theft, although this is a weird case.

    If you are jailed you will need to disclose the entire matter. If she does not file a complaint, I think you will be okay.

    I do recommend that you change your handle on this forum.

    Why would you create a proper name on an anonymous forum when discussing such a sensitive issue?

    Don't know where you live but I was in law enforcement in Southern California for 31 years and ***assuming your story is 100% legit***, what you did would not be a crime. Just as long as you did no more than what you posted, you're fine. Now if you left her that stuff and then followed her and/or continued to send her unsolicited messages, they may be able to stretch a "stalking" case out of it but once again a prosecutor would have to show criminal intent if something like that ever went to trial....which is never would in my BIG city.

    You're not going to jail. Calm down. You did a stupid thing. Whether or not it gets in the way of a scholarship is anyone's guess. The only way it could be a problem is if you actually get arrested. If you get arrested then you can worry until then...learn from this silliness.
