NY man sentenced in college grades-for-pay scandal

A former official at New York City's Touro College is going to prison for his role in a scheme to sell phony degrees and transcripts.

NEW YORK —

A former official at New York City's Touro College is going to prison for his role in a scheme to sell phony degrees and transcripts.

Andrique Baron of Elmont was sentenced to two years, eight months to eight years in prison. The prosecutor had said he would recommend up to 16 years.

The 36-year-old Baron was convicted in June of tampering with computers, receiving bribes and falsifying business records.

Baron was Touro's admissions director at its Manhattan School of Career and Applied Studies. He was one of four Touro officials accused of accepting thousands of dollars from six students and non-students.

Former computer director Michael Cherner pleaded guilty in February and was sentenced to one to three years in prison.
