Assistant principal and her daughter, 17, are arrested after ‘rigging homecoming queen election by HACKING student accounts and casting fake votes’ so she could win

A Florida teen and her mother have been accused of rigging a high school homecoming court election by hacking students’ accounts and casting fake ballots.  

Emily Rose Grover, 17, and Laura Rose Carroll, 50, were arrested on Monday in Pensacola after investigators uncovered their alleged plot to tamper with the election at Tate High School so that the teen would win homecoming queen last fall. 

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said it opened the investigation in November after officials with the Escambia County School District (ECSD) reported that hundreds of student accounts had been accessed without authorization.

Investigators alleged that Carroll, an assistant principal at Bellview Elementary School, which is part of ECSD, used her credentials to break into the accounts and cast votes for Emily, who ultimately won the title.
