How College Admissions Scam Was Pulled Off: Prosecutors
William Singer, the accused mastermind behind the college admissions scam, allegedly encouraged parents to fake their child's learning disability in order to ensure they had extra time to cheat on tests like the SAT or ACT. It was just the first step in what Singer referred to as his "side door" into elite universities, prosecutors say. Administrators working at the testing centers were allegedly paid to look the other way. Felicity Huffman is one of the parents accused of using Singer's services.
