Story hereAdam Wheeler, 23, of Milton, Del., a former Harvard student charged with 20 counts of larceny, identity fraud and pretending to hold a degree, was arraigned Tuesday in Middlesex Superior Court, pleading not guilty to charges he faked his credentials to get into the prestigious Ivy League college.
Meanwhile, Harvard University students and faculty are trying to understand how a student arrested and charged with fraud managed to fake his academic credentials, winning $45,000 in financial aid, grants and scholarships.
Wow, the guy made it to his senior year and was going for a Rhodes Scholarship. And then tries to get into Yale when this fails through. Some balls on him.
What should happen to this guy? Throw the book at him for fraud? Slap on the wrist? He's a senior so he must've been doing SOMETHING somewhat right while there, as he's close to being done. Should they just let him finish it out and say no harm no foul? Hey, he managed to fake the minds at Harvard for a number of years, that's saying something right?
What's your take?
