'Jeopardy!' winner gets probation for sneaking into emails

Last Updated Jul 20, 2018 at 2:00 pm EDT

ADRIAN, Mich. – A seven-time “Jeopardy!” winner who taught history at a Michigan college has been sentenced to probation for going into the email accounts of professors, administrators and students.

Stephanie Jass apologized Friday in Lenawee County court, saying she was sorry for causing pain. She’ll be on probation for a year.

Jass’ seven-episode “Jeopardy!” winning streak in 2012 was a record at the time for a female contestant.

Police say Jass logged into other email accounts without permission over a four-day period after Adrian College reset passwords and assigned everyone the same temporary password. She had a document that listed “comments and problems” of faculty members.

Judge Margaret Noe (NO’-ee) says, “Nations fear this type of behaviour.”
