Local News

BOSTON, Mass. (WCIA) — More than a dozen parents were arraigned Monday morning on new charges in the nationwide admissions scandal, including Elisabeth Kimmel. All entered not guilty pleas.

Nineteen defendants face additional charges after being indicted last month for conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering.

Thirty-six parents, along with several coaches and administrators, are said to have worked with college consultant William Singer. Prosecutors say they cheated on SAT’s and falsified students’ profiles as athletic recruits.
