A former Orange County high school student was convicted Monday of breaking into his school to steal Advanced Placement tests and alter his official college-transcript grades.
Omar Shahid Khan, 21, who lives in Coto de Caza, was charged with entering classrooms and administrative offices at Tesoro High School on several occasions late at night and on weekends between January and May 2008, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

Khan was also charged with changing transcript grades of other students.
