How prosecutors say the admissions bribery scheme worked

13 March 2019

Parents of prospective students conspired with a college entrance consultant to beat the system and ensure their students were admitted or had a better chance to be admitted to certain colleges or universities, including Yale, Stanford, Texas, UCLA, USC, Wake Forest and others.

Loughlin and Huffman were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud.

Several high profile celebrities, CEOs and college coaches, were indicted on Tuesday for allegedly participating in a scheme "focused on getting students admitted to elite universities as recruited athletes, regardless of their athletic abilities, and helping potential students cheat on their college exams".

Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among at least 40 people indicted in a nationwide college admissions bribery scam, according to court records which were unsealed in Boston.

Cape Town - If there's one thing Meghan has learned since joining the royal family, it's avoiding nasty comments on social media. Another high profile aide for the Duchess, Melissa Toubati, 39, sensationally resigned just six months after the royal wedding.

"Huffman later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so".

College coaches and others have been charged in a sweeping admissions bribery case unsealed in federal court. A confidential informant told investigators that he told Huffman he could arrange for a third party to correct her daughter's answers on the SAT after she took it.

The lawyers said Singer offered people up to $75,000 to take college entrance exams for students.They also accused him of paying college coaches to accept students as sports players even if they had never played the sport.

Loughlin, a.k.a. Aunt Becky, apparently paid a total of $500,000 in exchange for having their daughters designated as crew recruits to USC, as evidence in emails from Loughlin.

William "Rick" Singer, the Newport Beach man who was the founder of the college consulting nonprofit The Key Worldwide Foundation, pleaded guilty Tuesday afternoon to conspiracy to commit racketeering, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice.

In 2007 Singer began operating the Edge College & Career Network, also known as "The Key" - a college counseling and preparation services business, authorities said. In some cases, the lawyers said, Singer worked with parents to create false academic and athletic successes for the students, including putting student's faces on the images of real athletes in action.

Singer funneled bribe payments to her through Fox, court documents allege, but in July 2018 Singer sent her a $5,000 check directly. Then, Singer paid Mark Riddell, another defendant, to bribe the two exam administrators, prosecutors said.
