Why Defendants in the College Admissions Scam Are Changing Their Pleas

Time Magazine, By Janelle Lawrence and Patricia Hurtado (Bloomberg)

Former Pimco CEO Douglas Hodge pulled the trigger. So did Hercules Capital founder Manuel Henriquez and Michelle Janavs of the Hot Pockets family food empire.

In the space of 22 hours late last week, the U.S. revealed that the three would change their pleas to guilty in the biggest college admissions scam it has ever prosecuted. On Monday morning, Hodge entered his new plea, with the others, plus Henriquez’s wife, Elizabeth, due in court in the afternoon.

...The plea changes come as U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani has handed out a string of jail terms, ranging from two weeks to five months, to nine of the 10 parents sentenced so far, with a year’s probation for one. They and half a dozen other parents who have pleaded guilty admitted participating in a mail fraud conspiracy.

The parents who’ve been fighting the case — including Janavs, Henriquez and Hodge — face the additional, more serious charge, which could spur the judge who sentences them, Nathaniel Gorton, to take a harsher stance.

The latest sentence came Friday, when Talwani gave Los Angeles property developer Robert Flaxman one month in jail, plus 250 hours of community service and a $50,000 fine, for paying $75,000 to fix his daughter’s test scores. He was previously accused of paying $250,000 as well, in an athletic recruitment scheme involving his son. That claim appears to have been dropped as part of his plea agreement.

...“I think the message is out,” Henning said. “‘Cut your deal now and hopefully you’ll receive a lighter sentence.’”

It couldn't happen to a more deserving group of people.
