From news reports (sorry, can't post the link here):


PLEASANTON -- The president and CEO of a private college that catered to foreign students has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for defrauding the Department of Homeland Security by issuing phony visa-related documents to international students in exchange for tuition and fees, the U.S. attorney's office said Monday.

Prosecutors say Susan Xiao-Ping Su, the founder of Pleasanton-based Tri-Valley University, lied about the school's admission and graduation requirements in order to bring international students to the United States on an F-1, or student, visa.

In exchange, Su collected more than $5 million in fees, money that she used to buy multiple properties around Pleasanton along with a Mercedes-Benz, prosecutors said.


In addition to her prison term, Su was ordered to forfeit $5.6 million along with $900,000 in restitution from her visa fraud scheme."


Justice served!
