4 more parents pleading guilty in college admissions scandal

BOSTON (AP) — Four more parents are pleading guilty in the college admissions bribery scandal, and a Texas man accused of helping to orchestrate the scheme has also agreed to a deal.

Parent Douglas Hodge entered his guilty plea in Boston’s federal court Monday after previously pleading not guilty in April.

Also scheduled to reverse their pleas are parents Michelle Janavs, Manuel Henriquez and Elizabeth Henriquez. Each faces charges of fraud and money laundering.

Martin Fox, the president of a private tennis club in Houston, also agreed to plead guilty in a deal that prosecutors announced Monday. He is charged with a single count of racketeering.

The four parents join 15 others who have pleaded guilty in the case, while 15 other parents are fighting the charges.
