California executive avoids jail in college cheating schemeThe owner of a California frozen foods company avoided jail Friday for paying $ 15,000 to rig his daughter’s college entrance exam in a widespread admissions scandal. Peter Jan Sartorio, of Menlo Park, California, was sentenced in federal court in Boston to a year of probation after pleading guilty in May to a single count of fraud and conspiracy in a deal with prosecutors. U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani also ordered him to perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $ 9,500 fine.
