More Arrests from Top Schools Expected in SAT Cheating Scandal

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Two months after a Long Island high school graduate was arrested for taking college entrance exams for classmates, authorities are expected Tuesday to charge 13 additional students in connection with the widening cheating scandal.

The expected arrests are of students who graduated from some of the best suburban public high schools in the New York area, according to CBS New York, including Great Neck South, Great Neck North and Roslyn High School, as well as a Catholic school in Manhasset and a Jewish school in Great Neck.

In September, Nassau County Dist. Atty. Kathleen Rice charged 19-year-old Sam Eshagohoff, a Great Neck North graduate, for allegedly accepting payments of $1,500 to $2,500 from six students to take their SATs for them. Eshagoff allegedly used a fake ID and took the tests at locations where he wouldn't be recognized.
