Here Are The People Who Have Been Named And Shamed In The Notorious College Bribery Scandal

Much of the online commentary on the 2019 college admissions scandal has centered around actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman. But while these women’s fame has undoubtedly propelled them to the forefront of the furore, they are merely two out of 50 or more individuals who have been accused of involvement in the scheme. And as it turns out, many of their fellow indictees are also pretty prominent people.

News of the so-called college admissions scandal broke in March 2019 when United States federal prosecutors revealed details of an investigation. Their criminal complaint indicted 50 people who were accused of committing fraud offences. And according to the authorities, the scheme of which these individuals had apparently been a part involved the bribery of examination officials and college coaching staff as a means of getting potential students into elite schools.
