Tobin made two allegations of securities fraud for his role in a pump-and-dump system involving manipulation of stocks by two companies he secretly owned. The Securities and Exchange Commission said that the stock of both companies was artificially inflated for Tobin's own profits.
He told investigators that Rudolph "Rudy" Meredith, the main woman's football coach at Yale University, had been seeking a bribe in return for getting her daughter into the Ivy League school, Wall Street Journal reported.
The trainer collaborated with Singer to accept bribes in exchange for appointing Yale applicants as a team recruiter, according to a court application. Meredith could not be reached for comment.
What followed after that was an annual investigation culminating in the arrest of Meredith and other coaches; parents, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin; cogs in the alleged bluff, like Mark Riddell, accused of taking tests for others or fixing points; and the mastermind of the plot, Singer.
Tobin has not been charged in the college admissions scam case but the WSJ reports that he is waiting for judgment in securities fraud cases where he signed a claim agreement in November.
The survey data, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, focuses on law enforcement efforts to gather evidence against Singer, who made $ 25 million by running a system where he mutated buses and university administrators to appoint students who recruited athletes and also solid SAT and ACT test results.
"I created a side door," said Singer in the district court on Tuesday as he pleaded guilty to four bills related to the multimillion dollar scam and admitted that the case against him was correct. "So that was what made it so attractive to so many families I have created a guarantee."
