Tuesday, February 25, 2020

A California woman whose family's company created the microwavable snack Hot Pockets faces sentencing on Tuesday for paying $300,000 to people who helped her two daughters cheat on college entrance exams and helped one win admission to the University of Southern California as a fake volleyball recruit. Michelle Janavs is set to appear in Boston federal court after admitting to taking part in a vast U.S. college admissions cheating and fraud scheme to help her daughters gain an unfair advantage.

Inventing hot pockets should have been a crime. Gross.

I haven't had a hot pocket in at least 20 years and I'm still recovering from the burns in my mouth...

Remember that mom who lied about her address to get her kid in a better elementary school.

She got 5 years.

She was also poor.

Jurors should nullify all non violent crime cases until the justice system is reformed.

There is a perfectly legal way to do this: donate money or a building to the school, and the school miraculously finds a way to admit your kids. It's been going on for literally ever, and no one has every been prosecuted for it. Is it ethical? Hell no. But it's the "accepted" way of doing business. If they had just handed the college the same amount of money they paid out to cheat, it never would have raised an eyebrow.

Except for the fact that $300k doesn't get you anything at SC anymore.

I invented the fake-metal-lined-microwave-safe sleeve that the hot pocket is inserted into, and because it tells you so right there on the package, you sort of convince yourself that it allowed some crispyness to develop.
