USC coach who created fake athletic profiles for children of wealthy parents sentenced

there wasn’t a lot of surprises here because you know, they had what they call a c plea where they had agreed in advance and they simply needed to convince the court to accept it. The punishments are very consistent with the other defendants in this case. So at this point, the court has to take into account the similarity between the conduct among all of these different defendants. So in some ways the pattern was set here. Um did the punishment fit the crime? If this was not such a high profile case, these people would not likely have been sentenced to incarceration. Miss Laughlin seemed very remorseful actually. I was very struck by her allocution. I thought it was very powerful. I thought it was powerful also to the court. The court referenced it. In fact, he directly said, I believe you were remorseful and sincere and I will guarantee you he doesn’t say that to everyone, but he ordered them both to appear in November 19, 2020. That’s gonna come up soon now. It is possible those dates in our experience have been extended many times by the B. O. P. Because of the covid crisis. They may just not be able to accommodate them so that could shift. But he he did order them to appear in 90 days
