 – A now-fired Stanford University sailing coach, along with 13 other Bay Area CEOs, real estate moguls, a jewelry store owner and a vintner were among the 50 people charged in a nationwide college-admissions scam, federal prosecutors said on Tuesday.

Dubbed “Operation Varsity Blues,” the FBI and prosecutors in Boston described a detailed scheme where a total of 33 wealthy parents bribed college coaches and insiders at testing centers to help get their children into some of the most elite schools in the country. Some parents paid in Facebook stock. Other parents either Photoshopped their children’s faces onto athletes’ bodies, or pretended their children were someone else in pictures.

The article goes on to state the following:

“These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said in announcing the $25 million federal bribery case at a news conference in Boston.

The most high-profile names to come out of the biggest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department were Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.
