Top college coaches, university administrators, Hollywood actresses, and others have been charged in a widespread college admissions bribery case unsealed in federal court on Tuesday. The case is the largest college admissions scandal ever prosecuted by the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney Andrew E. Lelling said Tuesday at a news conference in Boston. Authorities say coaches at schools, including Georgetown, Stanford, Southern California, Wake Forest, UCLA, and Yale University, accepted bribes in exchange for admitting students as athletes, regardless of their ability.
