One Day In Prison For Coach In College Admissions Scandal

Sentencing For Former College Sailing Coach Today

(Boston, MA) — A former Stanford University sailing coach who pleaded guilty in the national college admission fraud scandal will avoid prison time. John Vandemoer was sentenced to one day served and two years supervised release. He previously pleaded guilty to racketeering and honest services fraud. Vandemoer reportedly steered over 600-thousand-dollars into Stanford sailing bank accounts for falsely qualifying three students as recruits. Defense attorneys pointed out that he never kept any of that money for himself. Vandemoer is the first person to be sentenced in the nationwide scandal that includes many high profile defendants.
