Maybe the celebrities should pay the college tuition for a number of students with good grades and SAT scores that cannot afford those expenses on their own?

Jail time and for parents and removed from schools with no credits for the kids.

The parents that did this need jail time. All the students need to be kicked out of the schools they are attending and all class credits CANCELED. NO CREDIT at all.

Ever since OJ, the rich and famous hire attorneys to get them out of the troubles they made for themselves. What does it tell the other rich parents wanting to do the same thing for their children?

They ARE criminals.....they should get jail time like anyone else that BREAKS THE LAW. Why should they get any privilege, who are they?????

I'd say more probation than jail time, though. Also depends on how much money someone was scammed out of.

all credits earned by the student should be cancelled and they should have a lifetime ban from the school in question. A permanent aster ix added to their college transcript.

Non-violent crimes, jails over-crowded. These are not jail-worthy; but hit 'em in the pocketbook! Hard! That's where it hurts the most. And I love the idea of banning their kids from certain campuses.

They should have to serve 10 years community service and pay the tuition for the five students who were closest to getting in.

Students should behave with more maturity, have respect for other's property, at 17 or 18, they should know RIGHT from WRONG. I feel sorry for the other students' loss of celebration for their accomplishments because of the few individual's lack of common sense and respect...

The punishment of cancelling the events for the rest of the school was punitive and Orwellien. This collective punishment is reminiscent of the PRC or the CCP not the USA. Shame!

Should of not punished all students, 20 kids should pay for the senior BBQ and not be allowed to show. I do agree with lowering the charge from a felony.

These kids couldn't celebrate 8th grade promotion because of Covid, now they missed out on another normal tradition like the assembly to recognize the hard work of a majority of students. Bend Lapine prides itself of equity of all students yet the life skills kids didn't get that equity.
