Laughlin should also serve two years of supervised release, serve 100 hours of community service and pay a $ 150,000 fine, and Giannulli was ordered to serve two years of supervised, 250 hours of community service. And pay a fine of $ 250,000.
Singer referred to his plan as the “side door” of entry, contrasting it with the “front door” of merit and the “back door” of multimillion dollar donations. He has pleaded guilty to several charges and is cooperating with prosecutors.

“The good news is my daughter … (U) is in SC … bad I had to make the system work,” Giannulli allegedly wrote in an email to her accountant.

At her virtual sentencing hearing in August, Laughlin apologized for her actions.
“I planned to give undue benefits to my daughters in the college admissions process,” Laughlin said. “In doing so I ignored my intuition and let myself be swept away by my moral compass. I felt that I was acting lovingly for my children. But in reality, it reduced my daughters’ abilities and achievements done.”
She said that she now understood that her decision helped eliminate existing inequalities in society.
“I could go back and do things differently as long as I wanted, I could only take responsibility and move on,” she said as her voice cracked and she started crying.
“I’m really, deeply and deeply sorry,” she said, wiping tears from her face with both hands. “I am ready to face the consequences and make amends.”
