Federal authorities were pursuing a securities fraud case last spring when a person involved said there was another story of great interest. From there, authorities found the head women’s soccer coach at Yale University, who allegedly accepted a $400,000 bribe to get a student with false credentials admitted. The coach began cooperating in what investigators said was the biggest college-admissions fraud ever prosecuted.
Prosecutors allege that parents paid a total of $25 million to consultant William Singer to bribe coaches and administrators to designate their children as top sports recruits at universities. Some parents also allegedly paid as much as $75,000 for test-cheating services. New details reveal more about the origins and breadth of the investigation.
