Students arrested for paying undergrad to take S.A.T. for them – district attorney in the case explains

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced Tuesday that seven students have been arrested, all current or former Great Neck North High School students, for their roles in an SAT cheating ring in which they paid a college student thousands of dollars to impersonate them and take the test.

The investigation into the cheating ring began after teachers heard rumors about the students paying a third party to take the test for them. Now the case is being investigated at Great Neck High School and other schools in the area to find out just how widespread this scam may be.

Katheleen Rice, who is leading the investigation, talks to Carol Costello on American Morning today about how the students were caught and how they were able to pull off the scam.
