CNN reports a dozen college coaches, sports administrators and test administrators each pleaded not guilty to racketeering in federal court in Boston on Monday. They're part of the sprawling college admissions scandal, in which prosecutors say the defendants carried out a scheme to cheat on standardized test, and/or to bribe college coaches. In turn, the coaches then helped the prospective students gain admission to a university by falsely claiming the students were athletic recruits. Court documents indicate a total of 33 wealthy parents were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud for their role in the scheme. Many of these defendants are scheduled to appear in federal court in Boston in the coming two weeks. Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are expected to appear in court on April 3rd.
