Final Parent in College-Admissions Cheating Case Found Not Guilty

A federal jury found a Florida investor not guilty of bribing a Georgetown University tennis coach to get his daughter admitted to the prestigious school, delivering prosecutors a rare defeat in the sprawling Varsity Blues college-admissions cheating case.

Amin Khoury was found not guilty Thursday of two counts: bribery, and fraud and bribery conspiracy. He was accused of paying former Georgetown coach Gordon Ernst nearly $ 200,000 in cash in exchange for having his daughter flagged as a recruited athlete, all but ensuring her admission to the university.
