John Wilson is being charged for paying $220,000 to the University of Southern California as a bribe for his son’s acceptance into the school then writing it off as a tax deduction. Wilson is one of more than 50 people who have been caught since March attempting to bribe a college for their child’s acceptance. Lying about his son’s athletic ability in 2013, Wilson paid life coach Rick Singer the bribe money. Singer later pleaded guilty to racketeering and money laundering, and he was later found to have been working with coaches and school officials to get numerous wealthy family children into the school for a price.
