I don't think that it's that simple. The people who were charged were charged based on wiretaps and emails in which they made statements about specific actions while acknowledging that they knew what they were doing was wrong. Singer, the guy who was the center of it all, warned some people not to say anything incriminating (and has been charged with obstruction for doing so), so there are clients of his who are on his records as having participated in the scheme but aren't being charged because they didn't incriminate themselves on the record.Oh that's a good point. I don't remember now so maybe the article did say that. I don't know why I can't find it now. But seriously ... they apparently had enough proof to have it all notated in the case file that this person paid $6.5 million to get their kids in and the schools involved, but they didn't charge them yet?! So again it makes me wonder how high a ranked official is that person that they still have not been charged. That shoulda been the first person charged.
The list of parents who were charged in the case is public and I believe it is complete, which is why I think the parent who spent all that money is probably one of the parents who wasn't charged. From what I have read, there were a lot of them.
