Uni-scandal: Now it is clear who has paid the most bribes

There are these two amounts of money, the notice in the possibly biggest fraud in the American education system. Wealthy parents have paid for the inclusion of their children in elite universities, such as UCLA, Stanford or Yale, in most of the 33 cases, you decide the career of their children, according to the indictment, the five-digit amounts of cost. Two families flipped, however, very much more money: $ 1.2 million, and even $ 6.5 million. So far was not yet known who invested so much money in the career of his offspring. But now, the origin of the two seven-digit amounts of is resolved, according to the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal, citing investigators circles: The money came from China – which is likely to be for the American accused of some interest.

The family of the student, Sherry Guo has paid $ 1.2 million to ensure that her daughter was accepted as a football player at Yale. The parents of Yusi Zhao spent 6.5 million dollars for a place to study in Stanford, your daughter came in the program for gifted sailors. In both cases, the money is to be flowed from China to the charitable organization's Key Worldwide Foundation, the William Singer, the alleged mastermind had used the scandal as a cover for the bribes. Singer had also founded the consulting firm Edge College & Career Network, and her nickname is "The Key": a door-opener.

Such companies abound in the United States, parents pay for a completely legal a lot of money to children to prepare for the tests or to facilitate access to the universities on a donation. Singer known already guilty in court, he said: "I have not invented a side entrance, because the children came in through the main door and back doors as donations, no guarantee."

the amount of The sums indicates that, according to the investigators, not that it particularly tricky was that the two Chinese students at an American elite University. It is throwing rather a light on how William Singers network worked and could relieve some of the parents. The two Chinese students are by now seem to have been expelled. Both universities did not want to comment on the request to the respective Profile in the student directory are deleted. The families, however, are not charged yet for any crime. The Prosecutor's office in Boston referred to request the reasons on ongoing investigations.

Maybe this will Felicity Huffman still annoy

Singer, so it means, according to the Los Angeles Times from investigators circles have demanded of the Chinese families so much money, because he could. The parents of the two students had met the Singer personally, but only the men of the company know and believed that the course in the United States, that wealthy would have to pay the parents a lot of money for admission to a University. You would have expected your lawyer, so that with the money you paid to Singers Foundation, scholarships for under-privileged children would be created. In truth, however, the Singer bribed so that, for example, sport coach, about the coach of the football team of Yale, has also already guilty.

the case of the two Chinese families (and their possible release has become at the end of the sentence) is now known, is likely to be for the American parents, who are accused of the theft of the Uni-access to their children. For example, for actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, who have spent a total of half a Million dollars to ensure that her two daughters be included as a talented rowing indoor at the University of Southern California.

Loughlin and Giannulli see themselves as victims of a Singer and therefore have pleaded not guilty. This strategy is considered risky, because Loughlin threatens in the case of a conviction, a prison sentence of up to 40 years in prison, and because in the case of a public court hearing pikante Details from the private life known. If Loughlin and Giannulli succeed at the hearings, as a naive parent who had no idea of the bribes could be given to the prosecution.

Perhaps the most prominent defendant is angry, the actress Felicity Huffman ("Desperate Housewives"), that she has known already guilty. She admitted to have $ 15,000 for a souped-up recording of the test paid. A prison sentence of up to ten months threatens. (Editorial Tamedia)
