The Latest: US attorney says schools not involved in scam
BOSTON (AP) — The Latest on a college admissions bribery scandal that has led to charges against coaches and celebrities (all times local):
Tax records show that a California charity accused of funneling money in a national college admissions bribery scheme claimed it gave out $500,000 to the University of Southern California.
An Associated Press review of Key Worldwide Foundation’s filings shows the Southern Cal contributions were part of nearly $2 million in grants in recent years. The foundation reported revenues that spiked from $451,600 in 2013 to $3.7 million in 2016.
A message left late Tuesday at the school wasn’t immediately returned.
Foundation founder William “Rick” Singer pleaded guilty Tuesday afternoon and acknowledged using his company and charity in the scheme.
