Gordon Caplan, who prosecutors say paid $75,000 past year to have some of his daughter's wrong answers corrected on a college entrance exam, was placed on leave from his post as co-chairman of the global law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher, the company said on Wednesday.
United States actress Lori Loughlin surrendered to authorities on Wednesday (March 13) and was to appear in a Los Angeles court to face charges in a massive college admissions scam involving other celebrities and top industry chief executives. She apparently spoke with the Today show about daughter Isabella's acceptance into college back in 2017.
If the claims are true, Loughlin and Giannulli must not have thought this scheme all the way through because their daughters didn't even participate in rowing activities before being accepted into school, so anyone paying even a little attention to the situation would have known something was up. She said her comment about being interested in partying only "was super ignorant and stupid.it totally came across like I'm not grateful for college", in the apology video. I'm so happy they made me go, that sounds so awful. "Shame you couldn't get in on your own merit. and your parents knew it". We were always like, 'You know what? Do the best you can 'cause in life if you give it your all and you do the best you can, that's it.
The actress and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid $500,000 to have their two daughters - Olivia Jade and her older sister, Isabella Rose - designated as recruits for USC's crew team. "That's all you can do.' And that's enough, in my opinion, especially with kids".
Beto O’Rourke tells Texas TV station he’s running for president
The 46-year-old Democrat was the US Senate nominee but narrowly lost to Republican rival Senator Ted Cruz in 2018. O'Rourke becomes the 15th Democrat to enter the race to decide who will take on Trump in the general election.
Another Twitter user said: "So what I've learned from #CollegeCheatingScandal is that rich kids are so stupid that they can't get into colleges without cheating".
Following news of the scandal, a video of Olivia, who has almost two million Youtube subscribers, discussing how she only had interest in going to college to attend parties began circulating the web.
Prosecutors revealed on Tuesday that they planned to indicted more than 40 people in the "largest college admissions scam ever", with Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, on their list.
But another three films in the series, produced by Vancouver-based Front Street Pictures, are now in pre-production and slated for a 2019 release.
However, Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was reportedly arrested on March 12 on charges of "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud."Radar Online reported that Mossimo appeared in court that same day and was ordered to be released on a $1 million bond".
