BOSTON (AP) — The Latest on dozens of people charged in the sweeping college admissions scam (all times local):
A former Florida prep school administrator has pleaded guilty to rigging students' entrance exam scores in a nationwide college admissions cheating scheme.
Mark Riddell pleaded guilty in Boston federal court Friday to mail fraud and money laundering conspiracy charges.
The 36-year-old Harvard graduate was among 50 people charged last month in the sweeping college admissions scandal. Others arrested include celebrities, wealthy parents and athletic coaches at elite universities.
Authorities say Riddell took entrance exams in the place of students or corrected their answers. Prosecutors say he was typically paid $10,000 per test.
