  • Another parent charged in college admissions scandal

A Surrey mom is the latest parent to be charged in a USA college admissions scandal that saw large sums of money allegedly exchanged for false acceptance offers.

Xiaoning Sui, whom prosecutors identified as a 48-year-old woman from British Columbia, was arrested in Spain and charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, according to the USA attorney in MA.

Prosecutors say Sui paid $400,000 to a sham charity operated by admissions consultant William "Rick" Singer as part of a scheme to have her son admitted to UCLA as a fake soccer recruit. Sui allegedly wired the first instalment of $100,000 USA to a bank account in MA after giving her son's transcripts to Singer between August and October 2018, along with photos of her son playing tennis.

Authorities plan to seek her extradition to Boston to face charges.

Singer, who has already pleaded guilty in the wide-spread scheme, passed the snapshots to a cohort, disgraced UCLA soccer-academy director Laura Janke.

Janke's illicit work of fiction described Sui's son as a "top player for two private soccer clubs in Canada", the feds said.

Why Trump is rallying in New Mexico
On September 15, 2019, Breitbart News reported Trump's warning that Democrats are searching to "confiscate" guns. To win in New Mexico, analysts say he'll have to win over Hispanic voters who make up a third of the electorate.

The feds said Sui wired the funds to Singer two days after his request for money - and fewer than two weeks after that, the school admitted her son "as a recruited soccer player" and awarded him the scholarship for soccer.

Salcedo was indicted in March, charged with arranging a similar deal with Singer in 2017.

Prosecutors did not explain why Sui was not part of the original group of parents charged in March.

Some of the parents' payments went to boost their kids' test scores, while other payoffs were for a handful of corrupt coaches at elite universities, the government says, from Stanford and the University of Southern California to Georgetown and Yale.

Another 28 defendants are contesting the charges against them, including "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who are accused of paying to get their two daughters into USC as fake athletes on the crew team.
