William “Rick” Singer promised to help high school students get into elite colleges that seemed unattainable given their grades and test scores.

He operated out of a $1.5-million Mediterranean-style home in Newport Beach.

The article goes on to state the following:

But federal prosecutors said he used fraud, lies and bribes to make those college dreams come true.

In federal court in Boston on Tuesday, Singer pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering, money laundering, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to defraud the United States in what authorities said was a scheme that funneled millions of dollars from parents to corrupt university officials and coaches through a sham charity and tutoring center.

Singer was reportedly released on a $500,000 bond after pleading guilty to multiple charges. His sentencing is set for June 19.
