Briggs, formerly an administrative support specialist for international students at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, with falsifying student visa records, The Charlotte Observer reported. Briggs is charged with indicating that 66 foreign students were enrolled full time (a requirement for their visas) when he knew that was not the case. A lawyer for Briggs said that he acted not for profit or political motive, but to help students about whom he was concerned.
