Another parent arrested as part of Varsity Blues college admissions scandal

first_imgLPETTET/iStock(NEW YORK) — Another parent has been arrested in connection to the so-called “Varsity Blues” college admissions scandal, this time for allegedly spending $400,000 to get her son a spot at the University of California-Los Angeles.The Department of Justice announced Tuesday that a Chinese woman based in Canada named Xiaoning Sui has been arrested in Spain in connection to her alleged efforts to get her son into UCLA.Sui, 48, faces one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud. She is being detained in Spain but the Department of Justice notes that authorities plan to extradite her to Boston.The indictment, which was unsealed on Tuesday in federal court, details how Sui allegedly agreed to pay the college admissions scandal’s alleged ringleader Rick Singer $400,000 to have her son be pitched as a soccer recruit to UCLA to gain admission to the school.An alleged co-conspirator named Laura Janke reportedly made a fake soccer profile for Sui’s son, who is not named in the Department of Justice news release and whose age is also not shared.Janke is cooperating with the government’s investigation and previously plead guilty, the release states.Sui allegedly made two payments to Singer’s fake charitable organization, the first for $100,000 in October 2018 and the second for $300,000 in November 2018, after her son had been admitted by UCLA and awarded a 25% scholarship, the Department of Justice release states.This new arrest comes days after one of the highest profile suspects in the scandal was sentenced.Actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in prison, ordered to pay a $30,000 fine, and complete 250 hours of community service for paying $15,000 to have someone rig her daughter’s SAT score.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Florida providers receive LSC grants

first_imgSeven Florida legal service providers will receive more than $16 million of the $303.8 in grants awarded by the Legal Services Corporation in 2007.In all, LSC will distribute grants to 138 programs with 900 offices that provide civil legal aid to low-income Americans in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories.“These grants will be used to provide civil legal aid to the most vulnerable among us at their time of greatest need— fulfilling our nation’s promise of equal access to justice for all, not just those who can afford to pay for it,” LSC President Helaine M. Barnett said.Grant recipients in Florida include: • Bay Area Legal Services in Tampa, $2,364,153.• Coast to Coast Legal Aid of South Florida in Plantation, $1,673,455.• Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida in Daytona Beach, $2,786,259.• Florida Rural Legal Services in Ft.

Many are elderly or disabled. Some are veterans. Most are at or below 125 percent of the federal poverty threshold, currently an annual income of about $25,000 for a family of four.Programs funded by LSC help low-income Americans secure basic human needs such as safe and habitable housing, protection from domestic violence, child support, and essential health care. The size of each grant is based on the number of people living in poverty in a given state or service area, as determined by the U.S. Census Bureau and required by law.

Manager ‘doesn’t want’ Tottenham player, which could lead to new slant…

first_imgSpeaking to Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet he said: “I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new. I have the craziest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham, it won’t be negative. But I have also said that I would like to try something new. I hope there will be a clarification during the summer. That’s the plan. In football you don’t know when a clarification comes. It can happen anytime.”Specifically on Madrid, he added: “It’s a step up. But it requires Real Madrid to call Tottenham and say they want Christian. And they have not done so yet, as far as I know.”This of course got a lot of coverage in Spain, but it was mainly just relaying the quotes, there wasn’t a lot to add from Real Madrid’s side about any moves from the club on a potential transfer.Tuesday’s edition of Marca has Paul Pogba splashed across the front page, and the claim is he’s very much the one wanted.In the article, the Spanish newspaper explain Zinedine Zidane has got his way and the manager ‘doesn’t want Eriksen, Van de Beek or anyone else’.He’s not convinced on the Tottenham player, and has apparently made that clear.This is good news for Spurs and their efforts to keep the Denmark international, who didn’t rule out staying beyond the summer. Christian Eriksen last week made it clear he’s questioning his future at Tottenham Hotspur, and at the same time he flirted a little with Real Madrid.last_img read more
