16 Years in Fake University Immigration Scam Meted Out

By    |   Wednesday, 05 Nov 2014 06:51 AM

A San Francisco Bay Area woman who prosecutors say was running a sham university that served as a front for an immigration scam has been sentenced to more than 16 years in prison.

Susan Xiao-Ping Su, founder and president of the phony Tri-Valley University in Pleasanton, was also ordered during a hearing to forfeit $5.6 million and pay more than $900,000 in restitution, according to The Associated Press.

She was convicted in March of visa fraud and other charges. Multiple Tri-Valley employees testified that the school had no graduation and admission requirements and that Su instructed her staff to fabricate transcripts and other documents.

Federal prosecutors say Su was selling visa-related documents that allowed foreigners, mostly Indian nationals, to live in the U.S.
