What happened to Rick Singer?

Many of the people involved in the admissions scandal have taken plea deals or have already been punished for their roles. In October 2019, Felicity Huffman did 11 days of her two-week sentence. In December 2020, Lori Loughlin will have been in jail for almost two months. Her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, is expected to be freed in April 2021.

Singer pleaded guilty to fraud, obstruction, racketeering, and money laundering in March 2019. He did help the FBI with its investigation, which led to many parents, coaches, and administrators being arrested.

Singer’s lawyers filed a motion in July 2020 so that he could move from his home in California to Arizona.

Singer was getting a Ph.D. in psychology at the Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona, at the time.

The request was granted by the judge. AZ Central says that Singer was no longer a student at the university by the middle of July.

His exact location is unknown, and in the spring of 2019, he sold his house in Newport Beach, California, for .

5 million.

Yes. In March 2019, he pleaded guilty to four felonies: money laundering conspiracy, racketeering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the U.S., and obstruction of justice. He probably would have faced much harsher charges if he hadn’t agreed to work with the FBI to help catch some of the parents who took part in his scam.

Why hasn’t Rick Singer been punished yet?

Singer might not have been sentenced yet because, according to the documentary, he still has to testify at other defendants’ trials. His cooperation in those court appearances could affect how long (or short) of a sentence he gets in the end. Singer also still hasn’t been given a date for his future sentencing.

CNN reported in March 2019 that Singer could spend up to 65 years in prison and pay more than $1 million in fines. (At the time the scandal broke, he was said to be worth $25 million.)

Since then, one of the last times Singer was seen was in May 2020, when TMZ spotted him paddleboarding in a Speedo in Newport Beach, California. That was just a few days before Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded guilty in a Massachusetts courtroom to the scam charges against them.

What’s Rick Singer doing now? Is he still working as a college coach?

In July 2020, it was said that Singer was working toward getting a Ph.D. in psychology at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. He started at the school in November 2019, about eight months after his scandal became public. (No one knows if he got into GCU through one of his patented “side doors” or by applying the old-fashioned way!) He later either quit school or got kicked out.
