DENTAL STUDENT PLEADS GUILTY TO FINANCIAL AID FRAUD IN FEDERAL COURT
July 8, 2009
ANTHONY JUAN WALKER, age 27, a resident of Tarrytown, New York, pled guilty in federal court today before U.S. District Judge Carl J. Barbier to federal financial aid fraud, announced U. S. Attorney Jim Letten.
According to court documents, WALKER submitted a fraudulent college transcript from Cornell University which falsely inflated defendant’s grade point average and falsely indicated that defendant had taken the prerequisite science courses for Dental School Admission, as well as fraudulent Dental Admission Test results to the Louisiana State University Health Science Center New Orleans School of Dentistry. As a result, WALKER obtained admission to LSU School of Dentistry and received $40,072 in loans under the Federal Family Education Loan Program.
WALKER faces a maximum term of imprisonment of five (5) years, a $20,000 fine and up to three (3) years supervised release following any term of imprisonment. WALKER sentencing has been scheduled for October 14, 2009 at 1:30 P.M.
This investigation was conducted by U. S. Department of Education and Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U. S. Attorney Julia K. Evans.
