行賄40萬把兒「踢」進名校 中國公民隋曉寧認罪

被控涉嫌大學錄取詐欺,為把兒子送進洛杉磯加州大學(UCLA)而行賄40萬元的中國公民隋曉寧(Xiaoning Sui),21日在波士頓的聯邦法院認罪。

49歲的隋曉寧住在加拿大卑詩省蘇雷鎮(Surrey),她被控向大學錄取顧問辛格主謀的詐欺集團行賄,該詐欺組織每年至少收取1萬元賄賂。隋曉寧在此案中被控賄賂UCLA招生人員。

隋曉寧向辛格的假冒慈善組織支付40萬元,以使她的兒子以足球特長生身分被UCLA錄取。她去年9月在西班牙被捕並羈押,直至被引渡到美國。隋曉寧在聯邦法庭通過翻譯表示,她對檢方的指控認罪,檢方建議不增加她的刑期。

檢方說,辛格與南加州大學的前足球教練勞拉·詹克共同編造了隋曉寧兒子的簡歷,稱他是頂尖足球運動員,曾在加拿大的兩家足球俱樂部效力,但事實上他沒踢過一場比賽。辛格和詹克也都表示認罪。

隋曉寧的兒子2018年11月被UCLA錄取,校方發給他25%的獎學金。UCLA去年9月說,在獲悉這是錄取詐欺後,立刻採取了糾正措施。

隋曉寧的律師表示,她是在西班牙度假期間被捕,此前不知道她被美國通緝。隋曉寧21日獲釋後將返回加拿大,直至量刑宣判。

數十個富人家長捲入了錄取詐欺醜聞,他們通過行賄來篡改子女的考分,或是讓子女以體育特長生被名校錄取,包括耶魯、史丹福和喬治城等大學。其中50多家長被控,包括「慾望師奶」(Desperate Housewives)的明星費麗西蒂·霍夫曼(Felicity Huffman),她是因行賄1萬5000元以篡改女兒的考分而被判刑14天,去年10月在服刑11天後獲釋。

但也有人對指控提出挑戰,包括「歡樂滿屋」(Full House)的女星蘿莉·羅夫林(Lori Loughlin)及其時裝設計師的丈夫,兩人被控編造兩個女兒是運動員的簡歷,以便被南加州大學錄取。

富裕父母花錢把子女送進著名大學的醜聞鬧得沸沸揚揚,而據悉其中手筆最大的包括中國家庭;消息人士透露,一個中國家庭就付了650萬元給主持這個騙局的大學入學顧問辛格 (William Singer)。

這個家庭的身分還不明;法庭文件稱為「耶魯申請人1號」的郭雪莉(Sherry Guo,音譯)的家人則付了120萬元。這兩家人都未受到起訴。

這些家庭特別惹人注意,因為他們花的錢遠多於迄今受到起訴的33個父母的幾乎所有人。被起訴的這些父母有許多付了25萬元到40萬元作弊,包括假造大學入學測驗分數,以及賄賂大學運動校隊的教練。

郭雪莉的律師史波特斯(James Spertus)說,21歲的郭雪莉原來想上哥倫比亞大學或牛津大學,可是辛格叫她上耶魯,並保證她一定能夠如願。

他說,五年前從中國到加州唸高中的郭雪莉不熟悉在美國申請大學的程序,不覺得辛格的指示有何不對。在辛格安排下,她去年秋天以校隊招募對象的名義進入耶魯,不過現已離開。

「華爾街日報」說,愈來愈多中國家庭把子女送到美國唸高中,甚至唸小學,希望日後能夠順利上大學。大學院校有時會審查協助外國學生申請學校的外國代理人,可是比較少注意在美國的獨立大學顧問。

郭家是由洛杉磯一個財務顧問介紹認識辛格。法庭文件顯示,這個顧問的手下2017年11月告訴辛格,「耶魯申請人1號」的父親想為女兒申請大學「捐錢」給一所名校。

辛格第二天就把這個學生的資料寄給耶魯女子足球隊教練梅瑞迪斯(Rudolph Meredity),並捏造這個學生是中國全國重點培養球隊的隊員,以及南加州一個著名足球隊共同隊長。

辛格付了40萬元給梅瑞迪斯,把這個學生列為校隊招募對象。梅瑞迪斯上個月認罪,耶魯也宣布取消一個涉案學生的入學許可,可是沒有透露其身分。

郭雪莉原來就讀的JSerra天主教高中校長說,她藝術天分極高,很有才華,成績也很好。學校網站顯示她是全國榮譽協會分會的外籍生幹部。

Yale Students Aren’t Surprised Their School Was Central In The College Admissions Scandal (HBO)

Published on Mar 24, 2019

When the FBI went public with Operation Varsity Blues and exposed a network of wealthy families cheating the college admissions system, Yale students were unsurprised to discover that their school was at the center of it all. A wealthy Yale dad had tipped off investigators. A Yale soccer coach had accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from families eager to secure a spot at the Ivy League school.

The prosecutors confirmed what almost everyone already suspected: our higher education system is no meritocracy. Vice News Tonight met with Yale undergraduate students from high and low income backgrounds as they processed the news during their spring break. "I think people with a lot of money leveraging that to get into Yale was not surprising at all," explained Lily, a Yale senior from California who identifies as lower income. "But the extent of it is shocking. I think at first I was very like 'Oh, I'm so unsurprised.' And then the next day I was like 'No, I'm actually really angry.' I think the anger took a while because it was so funny."

For students from more affluent backgrounds, the scandal made them reflect on whether or not there was a moral difference between the fraud seen in this case and the socially accepted practice of wealthy families donating money and buying campus buildings. Ethan, a freshman and legacy of Yale, argued that at least donations have some benefit. "I think there is a moral difference between perhaps donations versus bribery... the school benefits and for other kids tuition and it might pay for new programs or something that can benefit people. Bribery doesn't go to the school."

Yale rescinds admission of student implicated in nationwide admissions scandal

BILL GALLAGHER & SKAKEL MCCOOEY

After authorities charged at least 50 people, including celebrities and coaches of Division I sports, with paying or accepting bribes to help admit applicants to Yale and other elite universities, University spokesperson Tom Conroy told the News on Sunday that the University has rescinded the admission of one student “as a result of this matter.”

In a Sunday interview with the News, Conroy said that Yale has started an internal review with the assistance of outside counsel. He added that Yale has no reason to believe that other students were involved in the scheme besides the one who had her admission rescinded and another who was never accepted.

On March 14, The Wall Street Journal reported that Morrie Tobin, a father of Yale students, allegedly tipped off federal authorities to the scandal when he provided information in an attempt to gain leniency for an unrelated securities fraud case. According to the Journal, former Yale women’s soccer head coach Rudy Meredith offered Tobin a bribe, which he declined.

The Journal later reported on March 19 that, according to a person familiar with the investigation, Tobin participated in the scam by paying a bribe. However, Conroy said that Yale does not know the Journal’s source and cannot comment on the accusation’s accuracy. At the time of this story’s publication, the News has not been able to identify the source or confirm the allegation published in the Journal.

The scandal centers around a for-profit admissions company based in Newport Beach, California. The owner, William “Rick” Singer, allegedly received $25 million in bribes from parents to help their children cheat on college entrance exams and pass money to varsity sports coaches, according to prosecutors. According to unsealed Department of Justice documents, Meredith “accept[ed] bribes in exchange for designating applicants to Yale as recruits for the Yale women’s soccer team, and thereby facilitating their admission to the university.” The Department of Justice claims that Meredith had been working with Singer since April 2015.

Meredith, who resigned in November 2018, is charged with two counts of wire fraud and is scheduled to appear in court on March 28. Documents revealed that Meredith had been working as a cooperating witness for the FBI for at least five months — between April and November 2018 — during soccer season and a recruiting cycle.

In one example of bribery cited in court documents, Singer agreed to help “facilitate the admission of an applicant to Yale,” known in the case as “Yale Applicant 1,” “in or about” November 2017 in exchange for a $1.2 million payment from the applicant’s parents in the “spring or summer of 2018.” Yale Applicant 1 was admitted to the University as a women’s soccer recruit despite having never played competitive soccer and has since had her admission rescinded.

Singer allegedly worked with Laura Janke, a former assistant women’s soccer coach at the University of Southern California, to create a falsified profile to be included in that applicant’s application.

“[C]ould you please create a soccer profiles asap for this girl who will be a midfielder and attending Yale so she has to be very good. Needs to play Academy and no high school soccer…awards and honors — more info to come — need a soccer pic probably Asian girl,” read a Nov. 10, 2017, email from Singer to Janke, according to court documents.

When the applicant was admitted to Yale, Singer mailed Meredith a check for $400,000.

In an email to the Yale community the day the scandal was made public, Yale President Peter Salovey wrote that the University does not “believe that any member of the Yale administration or staff other than [Meredith] knew about the conspiracy.”

The Admissions Office deferred comments to Yale’s Office of Public Affairs and Communications, which released a statement saying that the admissions office was “the victim of a crime perpetrated by its women’s soccer coach, who is no longer at the university.”

“The Office of Undergraduate Admissions relies on varsity coaches to provide honest and expert evaluations of individual applicants’ athletic accomplishments and potential to contribute to a varsity team,” the statement continued. “The Admissions Committee considers these evaluations alongside the other components of an applicant’s file, but only students whose applications demonstrate their ability to succeed in the academic and residential components of the Yale experience are admitted.”

In his campuswide email, Salovey also noted that Director of Yale Athletics Vicky Chun has been implementing new policies to better oversee and assess Yale Athletics’ coaching staff to “ensure that student-athletes receive an excellent education at Yale and to enhance the quality of [Yale’s] athletic programs.” Chun will also conduct reviews of every coach’s roster of recruits before these rosters are sent to the admissions office.

Alongside Dean of Undergraduate Admissions and Financial Aid Jeremiah Quinlan, Chun will “implement a code of conduct for athletic recruitment.” Furthermore, the two will implement “more robust training for all coaches to ensure they understand” Yale’s recruitment policies, according to the email.

When announcing the initial charges March 12, Joseph R. Bonavolonta, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston office, said that this scheme was the product of a “culture of corruption and greed.”

“You can’t lie and cheat to get ahead because you will get caught,” he said.

Other universities implicated in the scandal include Stanford University, Georgetown University and the University of Southern California.
