Prosecutors denied that law enforcement officials committed a fault, fabricated evidence or attempted to trap “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin or other wealthy parents who are now awaiting trial in the scandal admissions to American colleges.
Prosecutors in a case sought to counter what a federal judge in Boston said last week as “serious and disturbing” allegations that investigators had pushed their cooperating witness to lie and deceive the parents so that they make incriminating statements.
This cooperator was William “Rick” Singer, a university admissions consultant who admitted to orchestrating a grand plan to use corruption and other forms of fraud to help wealthy parents secure their children’s admissions. in the best schools.
Prosecutors acknowledged that investigators ordered Singer on taped parent calls to “use tricks”, but said his calls with them were consistent with the evidence they had gathered and did not constitute misconduct from the government.
