We now have the first sentence in the massive college admissions cheating scandal. A former sailing coach at Stanford has received two years. Ears of supervised. Release he will avoid prison time. John van damore admitted to taking more than half a million dollars in bribes to help students get into Stanford. NPR's tovia Smith was in the federal court in Boston for the sentencing. She joins us now and till the to start the sentence actually was less than expected either sent. Absolutely of federal sentencing guidelines called for between two and three years. But also in this case, pretty much agreed that this defendant is somewhat unique. So prosecutors are actually asking for just over a year defense wanted. No time at all. Ultimately, the judge agreed with defense attorneys that John van damore was probably the least culpable defendant in the whole scandal. Because a he never got anything out of this for himself all the money that came in went to the sailing team. And also the students who he agreed to make special recruits to the sailing team. Never actually became sailing recruits. So the harm in the crime were considered to be less. Also this defendant took responsibility. He apologized profusely in court choking up in court as he spoke saying he was sorry for the cloud. He brought over his team and Stanford and saying that he deserved to be punished and he was deeply ashamed. Now, I don't know if prosecutors express their disappointment, but what was the reaction from them? Afterwards. No comment of. But certainly, they were disappointed. They spoke at length in court about wanting the sentence to send a powerful message that if you bribe or lie or cheat in the college admissions process like this, that you will go to prison, and if not the prosecutor said, if a defendant, walks away with a slap on the wrist, that would send a message that the courts don't really care, and that maybe what happened. Here is really more of a gray area than a bribe, and then prosecutors said, in the future apparent or a coach who's considering taking a bribe or doing something like this would think, well, if the sentences only gonna be probation, why not take the risk. And lastly, they raise the point that a slap on the wrist would make it look like different rules apply for the wealthy and the powerful versus those convicted of other crimes. So for all those reasons, they said it was important that the defendant, serve time the judge clearly so differently. Can you tell us more about what the defendant had to say to reporters afterwards? Yeah. A lot along the lines of what he said, in court that he has learned a lesson that he accepts responsibility for what he did. He's already lost a lot his lost his his home in his job in his career. But that again, he it was important to him to stress that what he did was not for himself not for his own gain. But that he was doing what he thought was right for the team. And he says now, he knows better. He's learned. There are about fifty defendants implicated in the scandal. What does all this mean for them going forward? Well, each case is so different the amount of money that changed hands, whether the person pleaded guilty, whether the person is cooperating, whether they've taken responsibility for what they did. Of course they're role their coaches. There are people who took tests for students change their scores. Each of those will bring different kind of disdain or sympathy at sentencing and importantly, it's also interesting to note, there's not one judge overseeing all these cases. There are maybe a half dozen or more overseeing the cases of some fifty defendants and all these judges have a lot of discretion in sentencing. That's NPR's tovia Smith in Boston. Thank you. Thank you. And you're listening to all things considered on WNYC federal land managers, want to fast-track force management projects, they say are critical to reducing wildfire risk.
