Jane Buckingham, parenting book author, gets three weeks in prison in admissions scandal
Jane Buckingham, a Beverly Hills marketing executive who wrote a book on parenting before she was arrested and charged with conspiring to rig her son’s ACT exam, was sentenced Wednesday to three weeks in prison.
U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani also imposed a $40,000 fine. After she serves her time in prison, Buckingham will be on supervised release for a year.
Buckingham pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to commit fraud, admitting she plotted with William “Rick” Singer, a Newport Beach consultant, to have Singer’s Harvard-educated accomplice take the ACT in place of her son. She acknowledged paying Singer $35,000 toward an agreed-upon price of $50,000, with the intention of having her ex-husband pay the balance.
