Harvard Impostor Guilty on 20 Counts

Harvard impostor Adam Wheeler is going to have to pay back the $45,000 in grants and prizes he conned the college out of. The 23 year old pleaded guilty to 20 counts of identity fraud, larceny, pretending to hold a degree, and other crimes. Wheeler spent two years at Bowdoin College before being kicked out for academic dishonesty. He then forged SAT scores, recommendations, and a prestigious academic record to transfer to Harvard, where he further decorated his résumé with the authorship of two books, the co-authorship of four more, and the delivery of lectures in Armenian studies. He was caught during his senior year when Rhodes and Fulbright committees became suspicious of his application.
