Former USC coach pleads guilty in college admissions scandal

Former USC coach pleads guilty in college admissions scandal

Appearing before U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani, Janke said she was involved in the scheme from 2012 to 2019, when prosecutors said she crafted fake athletic profiles for applicants - including actress Lori Loughlin's daughters - to secure spots at the university set aside for recruited athletes.

"Pretty much every school that required a falsified profile was created by Ms. Janke", Rosen said. She concocted profiles for students who were subsequently accepted into the University of California, Los Angeles; Stanford University; and Georgetown University.

An insider told People that Lori "would like" the case to go to trial.

In addition, while she was at USC, she helped four students gain entrance to the university under false athletic accomplishments. Esformes was not charged in connection with the college scam.

Laura Janke, 36, has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors and could be called to testify against others, including "Full House" star Loughlin and Giannulli, who have pleaded not guilty.

Janke also made fake athletic profiles for a Canadian client portaying them as an elite soccer player for UCLA, as well as a pole vaulter profile for the son of Elisabeth Kimmel, Rosen said.

Former Yale women's soccer coach Rudy Meredith, former Stanford sailing coach John Vandemoer and former Texas at Austin men's tennis coach Michael Center have already pleaded guilty in the sweeping case.

Latest Apple iPhone 11 leak points at exciting upcoming features
The International Business Times previously reported that the 2019 iPhone XR is going to have a dual-camera setup at the back. Apple's Greg Joswiak said a year ago that the iPhone XR had outsold the XS and XS Max "each and every day" since its release.

Alabama's strict anti-abortion bill headed to governor
After the vote passed 25-6, the ACLU of Alabama announced on Twitter that they would file a lawsuit to stop the abortion ban. All 27 Republican lawmakers in the 35-seat Senate are men. "Is it a life?" "I believe our law says it is".

Keanu Reeves profoundly answers one of the most hard questions
Film favourite Keanu Reeves has further endeared himself with an incredible reflection on mortality. The same is true of the John Wick crossover event that I assume is set to take place this weekend.

"Ok sounds good", Janke responded, the complaint states.

"Giannulli sent back a photo of the daughter on an ergometer, a type of indoor rowing machine", USA Today reports. They've also been slapped with felony money laundering charges for paying out $500,000 to falsely get their daughters Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella Rose, 20, onto the USC crew team to ensure their admission to the university - and both face a maximum of 40 years if found guilty. Giannulli directed his business manager to send a $50,000 payment to USC's senior associate athletic director Donna Heinel and later wired $200,000 to Singer's fake charity, the complaint states.

A handful of parents entered or planned to enter guilty pleas to the initial charges, including Huffman, and those who did not were later indicted on additional superseding charges.

The difference between the two cases, of course, is that Huffman entered a plea agreement while Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded not guilty in their case.

Singer paid $150,000 to a private soccer club partly controlled by Janke, officials say.

In April, Lori pleaded not guilty to the charges stemming from the scandal and seems to think she will likely get off without jail time.
