College Cheating Scandal

18 U.S. Code § 1346 defines honest services fraud as ” a scheme or artifice to deprive another of the intangible right of honest services” [1]. This can include bribery, which was a method used frequently in the college admissions scandal by parents who tried to get their children into college. In addition, if these bribes are sent through wire transfer, an individual may be charged with wire fraud. Both of these charges are serious, and can result in large fines and even prison time.
