Gordon Caplan College Admission Scandal

On March 12, 2019, at 6:30, He was arrested by the FBI, and indicted as an alleged parent participant in the 2019 college admissions bribery scandal, for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud. The U.S. Justice Department relied in part on a number of wiretapped telephone calls in which Gordon was taped secretly.

He appeared in Manhattan federal court, and he was released on $500,000 bail with strict travel restrictions. He was ordered to appear in Boston federal court on April 3, 2019.

His daughter had allegedly scored 22 (out of a possible 36) on an ACT college admission test practice exam, and Caplan allegedly discussed with his co-conspirator arranging for his daughter to fraudulently receive credit for a score in the 32 range on the test.

As part of the fraud, He is alleged to have arranged to have his daughter fake a learning “discrepancy”, in order for her to receive special permission to be given extended time and a separate room to take the ACT test. After obtaining it, she was allegedly permitted to take the test at a co-conspirator’s school in West Hollywood, California.

Caplan alleged co-conspirator, who has pled guilty, allegedly arranged for another conspirator, a bribed proctor, to “proctor” the daughter’s exam–and correct her wrong answers so that the daughter would be credited with the high score that He requested.

He was alleged to have paid $75,000 (set up to be tax-deductible, masked as a donation to the foundation of an alleged co-conspirator) in November and December 2018 to have two bribed proctors of the ACT test correct his daughter’s incorrect answers after she finished her exam, thereby improving her ACT test results by 10 points as she was applying to university.

It is alleged that he said to the co-conspirator, as reflected in a tape of one of his wiretapped calls: “To be honest, I’m not worried about the moral issue here”
