Sixteen parents involved in a college admissions scandal were charged Tuesday in a second indictment by a federal grand jury in Boston with conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering.
The indictment comes just a day after 14 of their co-defendants said they would plead guilty for their role in an alleged multimillion-dollar conspiracy that cheated college admissions exams and falsely claimed athletic recruitment. The defendants conspired with William Singer, and others, to bribe SAT and ACT administrators to allow a test taker to secretly take college entrance exams in place of students, or to correct the student's answer after the exam, and bribed university athletic coaches and administrators to falsify athletic recruits.
