Home Confinement for Ex-Coach in Admissions Scandal

July 1, 2022

A federal judge sentenced Ali Khosroshahin, a former soccer coach at the University of Southern California, to six months of home confinement after he cooperated with authorities investigating the college admissions scandal, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Prosecutors did not seek home confinement or prison time for Khosroshahin, citing his acceptance of responsibility and help in prosecuting others.

But U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani said that prosecutors’ recommendation of time served wasn’t enough, noting that Khosroshahin lured his assistant coach into the corrupt scheme.
