Yale student expelled over '$1.2m bribe'

Today 16:20 GMT

Yale University has revoked the admission of a student whose family is accused of spending $1.2m (£907,000) in a bribery scheme to ensure admittance.

Last year, Mr Meredith was caught by the FBI reportedly demanding another bribe, of $450,000, to designate an applicant as an athletic recruit for Yale. The celebrities involved in Mr Singer's scheme, as well as the targeted schools, are now facing lawsuits from parents and students.

Yale University rescinded the admission of a student whose parents allegedly paid $1.2 million to gain a spot at the elite university through the nationwide college admissions scheme.
