Personal tennis instructor for Michelle Obama, her daughters charged in bribery scheme

Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman Charged in College Admission Scam

Fifty people were charged Tuesday in a scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly bribed college coaches and other insiders to get their children into some of the nation's most elite universities.

In exchange, Abdelaziz would make payments to the tune of $20,000 per month in exchange for her acceptance into the school.

"Georgetown University is deeply disappointed to learn that former Tennis Coach Gordon Ernst is alleged to have committed criminal acts against the University that constitute an unprecedented breach of trust", university spokesperson Meghan Dubyak wrote in a statement to The Hoya.

"We frankly had the resources and the sophistication to take down a case of this magnitude", US Attorney Andrew E. Lelling told reporters Tuesday.

The 10 top local news stories from metro Boston and around New England delivered daily.

The case sparked outrage across the country, especially among parents who stress about the intense competition for places in universities and, more broadly, about privileged behaviour among the richest Americans. He took her participation as an artist and changed it to soccer, even creating a false online profile that made her the co-captain of a "prominent club soccer team from Southern California", according to a federal indictment.

Some local students and parents are outraged after hearing about the college admissions bribery scandal that came out on Tuesday.

Seungri booked in sex bribery scandal
A petition surfaced last week calling for him to step aside after causing "unrecoverable damage to the group's reputation". Seungri , whose real name is Lee Seung-hyun, is a 28-year-old mogul and singer in South Korea's popular K-pop scene.

"After working with campus leaders to review the recent situation with Michael Center, we have chose to relieve him of his duties as our Men's Tennis coach", Athletic Director Chris Del Conte said in a statement.

A newly unsealed federal indictment offers a glimpse into the world of money and influence, and shows how an investigation dubbed "Operation Varsity Blues" entangled a Stanford University coach and several Silicon Valley parents among dozens more of their monied counterparts throughout the U.S.

William "Rick" Singer, of Newport Beach, California, owns and operates Edge College & Career Network LLC, a for-profit college counseling and preparation business. Fifty people were charged in connection with the alleged scheme, which officials say dates to 2011. But Lelling said the alleged conspiracy also had several ties to MA. In 2012 he set up a nonprofit called Key Worldwide Foundation, which purportedly "helped underserved or disadvantaged youth", Singer said in court.

In January, the art student was admitted to Yale as a soccer recruit.

According to court documents, the student did not play competitive tennis.

By May - after Meredith had been approached by authorities - they were talking on the phone, and Singer was soliciting Meredith's help to bring other coaches into the scheme. "And I got him in the school, you know, and then he - then he withdrew from the team", Center allegedly told Singer when asked if he remembered what he'd done last time.
