Don’t the colleges know all about this?
What about the influence of alumni and university donors on the admissions process? We need to investigate the full extent of corruption in the system. #collegeadmissionsscandal #CollegeCheatingScandal
Felicity Huffman pleads guilty to paying $15,000 to have a proctor boost her daughter’s SAT scores. It is part of one of the largest college admissions scandals.
Huffman pled guilty on Monday to allegations of paying $15,000 to rig her daughter’s SAT score as part of a nationwide college admissions cheating scheme. US Attorney prosecutors are recommending that Huffman spend four months in federal prison and pay a $20,000 fine.
Felicity Huffman admitted to paying $15,000 to help improve her daughter’s SAT score, writing in a statement that she “accepts full responsibility” for her actions and “will accept the consequences.”
Felicity Huffman and Devin Sloane are sworn in for their plea colloquies. Judge Talwani notes she seldom does multiple guilty pleas at once, but is doing so in this case due to the large number of defendants.
Judge Talwani accepts the waivers of indictment. Neither Huffman nor Sloane has been indicted by a grand jury in this case. Instead, they are charged by what’s styled a criminal information … used when a suspect intends to plead guilty.
Felicity Huffman worked with Rick Singer to use Mark Riddell to correct her daughter’s SAT, the teen received a 1420. Huffman wrote Singer “Ruh ro” ala Scooby Doo, when her daughter’s high school wanted to proctor the SAT, but Singer was able to have the girl test elsewhere.
Judge Talwani: “Miss Huffman, do you have any dispute that you reached an agreement and ultimately paid Mr. Singer $15,000 to enable Mr. Riddell to correct your daughter’s SAT test?” Felicity Huffman: “No, your honor.”
