The manager of a small West Hollywood school where the rich and powerful went to take their children's entrance exams, pleaded guilty Wednesday in a Boston courtroom to conspiracy to do racketeering.

Igor Dvorskiy, a resident of Sherman Oaks, acknowledged that he received nearly $ 150,000 from William & # 39; Rick & # 39; Singer, a Newport Beach consultant in the middle of the college admission scandal, had deposited and in return allowed Singer to get a test scam from his school for years.

"I can make scores," Singer boasted to a lawyer in Greenwich during a phone call, "and no one on the planet can get scores." His secret: he arranged for his clients' children to take their exams at Dvorskiy's West Hollywood College Preparatory School, where Dvorskiy allowed Harvard-trained Mark's trader, Riddell, to give them the answers or correct their tests as soon as they were ready.

Singer customers paid $ 15,000 to $ 75,000 per test, of which Dvorskiy usually took $ 10,000, prosecutors said. Singer is said to have carried out a similar scam at a public high school in Houston, where he bribed an assistant to the teacher, Niki Williams, to close his eyes to cheating, according to an indictment of Williams with a conspiracy to commit racketeering .

Williams has argued not guilty. Singer and Riddell plead guilty to a series of crimes earlier this year, and await conviction.

Dvorskiy has also agreed to cooperate with prosecutors and testify during the trial, if summoned. The government is likely to try to use Dvorskiy to support its argument that Singer and his clients have become entangled in a single criminal conspiracy, with the aim of taking the companies that pass the SAT and ACT exams of their employees' fair work to cheat.

As a test administrator, familiar with certifying that the exams taken at his school were completed correctly, Dvorskiy deprived the test companies of his fair job when he chose to take bribes and help Singer rig exams, prosecutors reasoned.

If prosecutors decide that Dvorskiy has provided them with useful information or testimonials, they have agreed to recommend a sentence that is lower than in the case, which requires 24 to 30 months in prison. He also agreed to forfeit $ 149,540 – the amount he collected from the settlement, prosecutors say.

Dvorskiy, who was arrested in March, initially pleaded not guilty. He turned his waist away last month.

Four parents accused the case and followed: Douglas Hodge, the former director of bond manager Pimco; Michelle Janavs, a philanthropist in Newport Beach whose family invented the Hot Pocket; Manuel Henriquez, a venture capitalist in the Bay Area; and Henriquez's wife, Elizabeth, all pleaded guilty last month to conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering.

Prosecutors had threatened to blame the four, along with another 15 parents who had maintained their innocence, for a third crime count of federal program bribery if they did not undo their guilty pleas. The 15 parents who have not changed their plea – a group with actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli – have since been saddled with new charges.
