The mastermind and architect behind the school admissions scandal goes to finish up like Lori Loughlin(*42*) and Felicity Huffman(*42*) … by spending time behind bars.
Rick Singer(*42*) was sentenced to 42 months — 3.5 years — in federal jail for his function within the Varsity Blues scandal.
Remember … the feds say Singer was the architect of a large, decades-long fraudulent scheme to get highschool college students into elite schools and universities throughout the nation … together with the daughters of celebs like Lori and Felicity.
TMZ broke the story … prosecutors had been pushing for Singer to get 6 years behind bars(*42*), arguing he profited from the scheme greater than anybody and subsequently deserved a for much longer sentence than the mother and father, school coaches and others obtained.
Singer’s attorneys, in the meantime, requested for a most of 6 months within the huge home.
It’s price noting … greater than 50 mother and father, coaches and associates of Singer’s obtained sentences starting from 30 months in jail to only probation. Lori was sentenced to 2 months(*42*) behind bars, whereas Felicity acquired 2 weeks(*42*).
Singer was initially staring down a most sentence of 65 years behind bars … however he ended up cooperating with the feds and was the important thing to convicting the mother and father and coaches. Prosecutors say Singer wore a wire on the authorities’s route to nail the targets, and in addition made tons of of recorded calls.
Now, Singer’s going to con school.
