Anna Yun, 26, a Cerritos resident, pled guilty to two counts of student loan fraud arising from her employment in 1998 at Dongguk-Royal University, a private graduate school of Oriental medicine located in Los Angeles, United States Attorney Alejandro N. Mayork as announced today. According to Assistant United States Attorney Paul H, Rochmes, who prosecuted the case, Yun served as the Financial Aid Director of the University from February 1998 to May 29, 1998. During her tenure as the Financial Aid Director, Yun was responsible for processing applications for student aid, including applications for federally guaranteed loans under the Robert T. Stafford Federal Student Loan Program. Yun applied for and obtained Stafford Loans for her mother, her father and two friends, even though they had never applied to or attended the University. In order to obtain the loans, Yun falsely certified on the applications that all of the borrowers were full-time graduate students. The University discovered the fraud and reported it to the Department of Education shortly after Yun resigned. The loans that were fraudulently applied for totaled $62,500. Approximately $33,000 was disbursed before the fraud was discovered. The banks that had made the loans froze the remaining funds after the University reported the fraud. United States District Court Judge Margaret M. Morrow is scheduled to sentence Yuri on June 12, 2000 at 1:30 p.m. Yun faces a maximum possible sentence of ten years in prison and a $40,000 fine.
