College admissions scandal ringleader sentenced; investigating journalists to highlight S.C. Historical Society dinner
The man who devised the high-profile college admissions scandal involving families and schools across the country, was sentenced in U.S. District Court to 42 months in prison.
William “Rick” Singer will also pay nearly $20 million in restitution and forfeitures of ill-gotten gains. Between 2011 and 2018, parents paid some $25 million to Singer’s charity to bribe coaches and a college administrator to designate the children of wealthy clients as recruited athletes.
Since the scandal was first uncovered, Melissa Korn and Jennifer Levitz, of The Wall Street Journal, have reported extensively on it and will be the featured speakers for the Florida Supreme Court Historical Society’s “A Supreme Evening 2023” January 26 in Tallahassee.
