SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A leader of a Spokane, Washington-based
diploma mill pleaded guilty today to a federal charge of conspiracy
to commit wire and mail fraud.
Fifty-eight-year-old Dixie Ellen Randock -- a high school
dropout -- sold fraudulent college degrees and transcripts from
more than 125 bogus online universities she created.
She faces a maximum three years in prison and $250,000 fine when
she is sentenced in several weeks in U.S. District Court.
She and other family members were accused of using a Spokane
print shop and a rented basement office in Post Falls, Idaho, to
sell counterfeit degrees from the University of Maryland, the
University of Tennessee, Texas A&M and George Washington
University.
