    A lot of people have suggested the paying tuition for underprivileged kids as part of the sentence but I donít think that would pass muster in the appeals courts. You could make them pay fines but having to pay what is basically restitution to parties who have nothing to do with the case? As much as the layperson in me like the idea, it bothers the lawyer in me. It almost smells of a 13th Amendment issue... itís not really on point but it just feels legally wrong.

    ^ Thanks, I always love it when we get our experts weighing in.

    Actually, in this particular case, each of the cheaters displaced someone who was next on the list, right? So maybe some sort of direct compensation could be awarded to those students? Maybe not, but they were cheated out of that place, and it could be argued that would affect their whole lives; honestly, I really want those kids to know they did it, they made the grade, their work paid off - they had a piece of their future stolen through absolutely no fault of their own.

    Even then, how do you prove who those slots would have gone to?

    I think the other posters are right here. You can’t prove who would have gotten in minus some evidence that there was a waitlist, for example, and that someone was #1 or 2 or whatever on that list.

    A few students are already suing (including students who claim that this scandal has “devalued” their degrees), so I guess we’ll see what happens with those lawsuits. I don’t see them going anywhere. These schools reject perfect SAT score 4.3 GPA students all the time, so it would be super hard to prove that you would have gotten in but for these people cheating their way in.

    Please. If Lori and her t-shirt mogul husband were worried about their poor children being traumatized in court, they would have fallen on their swords and pleaded guilty, like Felicity did.

    And that is really fucked up though not surprising. Twelve years, though? That is beyond fucked up.

    In fairness, Tanya McDowell didn’t get 12 years for enrolling her kid in the wrong district. She got 5 years for larceny (because she got $15,000 worth of “school services” due to the enrollment). Then she got 12 years on an unrelated case (selling drugs to an undercover police officer), to be served concurrently with the 5 year sentence. 5 years though is still ridiculous, especially because she was homeless at the time. My state has special protection for homeless families when it comes to the school districts that their kids can attend.

    These districts pretend that their main concern is taxes but their real concern is keeping their districts segregated from the “riff raff.”

    They should be forced to set up and fund scholarships for underprivileged students.

    I read today somewhere in my travels that because Felicity is at the lower end of jail time (and her $15K bribe is also at the lower end, in some cases by a LOT) that she is likely to get 4 to 10 months house arrest while wearing an ankle monitor. I could live with that and call it fair. Not Loughlin though.
