More Than a Dozen Parents Due in Court for Largest College Cheating Scheme in U.S. History

(Boston, MA-AP) — More than a dozen parents charged in the nationwide college admissions cheating scheme are appearing in court. Authorities say the parents paid to rig their children’s standardized test scores or they bribed coaches and college administrators to get their children into prestigious universities.

Among the group of parents appearing in court today is Michelle Janavs, a member of the family that invented of “Hot Pockets.” Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, who were also charged, are not scheduled to appear in court until next week. At least three people have pleaded guilty in the case in Boston, including former Yale Women’s Soccer Coach Rudy Meredith.
