BOSTON – Thirty-three affluent parents, headlined by television stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Laughlin and CEOs, nine college coaches and others were charged Tuesday in the nation’s largest-ever college admissions bribery case that includes allegations of cheating on college-entrance exams and illegal payments to college coaches.

The U.S. Department of Justice charged 50 people with taking part in an elaborate conspiracy that involved cheating on the SAT and ACT and parents paying coaches of elite colleges and universities hundreds of thousands of dollars to accept students who fabricated their athletic credentials.

In some cases, coaches agreed to pretend that students applying to their school were highly recruited athletes when, in fact, they didn’t even compete in that particular sport.

Others charged included three people who organized the scams, two ACT and SAT exam administrators, one exam proctor, and one college administrator.

At the center of the case, according to federal prosecutors, was an admissions consultant named William Rick Singer, who pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy charges of racketeering, money laundering, defrauding the United States and obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors say Singer operated a college counseling organization called “The Key,” which he used to accept more than $25 million in payments from parents from 2011 through Feb. 2019. He’s accused of funneling money to coaches and others to guarantee admission to elite schools such as Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, the University of Southern California, UCLA, the University of Texas and Wake Forest University.

Singer worked with parents to create athletic profiles that faked credentials of club teams and would sometimes involve staged photographs or doctored stock photos from the internet.

  1. Prosecute each and every one of them to the Full Extent of the Law and make sure the Sentencing Judge is not a SJW Liberal Obama Judge!!

    Let’s see how much play this gets on CBS, CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, NYT, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, CBC, the Boston Globe, L.A. Times, SFO Chronicle, and the rest.

    I believe it is important that each and every name of those charged appears in Media for everyone and anyone to see.

  2. Well well, all these holier-than-thou Democrats…all getting measured for their Dior orange prison suits…very funny indeed..

  3. I believe this may be bigger than we might expect.

    I understand the man behind all of this was a Registered Charity and the Celebs and others that paid the Bribes were actually using the Payoffs as Charitible Donations for Write Offs for Tax Purposes.

    The Prosecution may seek very serious penalties and those Celebs and others deserve everything they get.

    Much more to come on this.

  4. Only two of those charged are Hollywood types.

    Many more are just as wealthy, unknown outside of business circles and largely conservative.

    Curious as to why Democrats get singled out? Are not Republicans believers in meritocracy, hard work and law and order?
