College Admissions Scam Suspects All Plead Not Guilty To Racketeering

Published March 25, 2019

Rumble CNN reports a dozen college coaches, sports administrators and test administrators each pleaded not guilty to racketeering in federal court in Boston on Monday. They're part of the sprawling college admissions scandal, in which prosecutors say the defendants carried out a scheme to cheat on standardized test, and/or to bribe college coaches. In turn, the coaches then helped the prospective students gain admission to a university by falsely claiming the students were athletic recruits.
