This is what I found on NYPost.com:
The son of Beverly Hills marketing CEO Jane Buckingham, whose mom allegedly took part in the nationwide college cheating scandal, apologized, saying he’s upset he was “unknowingly involved” in the scheme.
Jack Buckingham said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter that he hopes the scandal — in which his mom allegedly conspired to cheat on his ACT exam so he would get into the University of Southern California — will change the college admissions process for the better.
“I know there are millions of kids out there both wealthy and less fortunate who grind their ass off just to have a shot at the college of their dreams,” he told the publication. “I am upset that I was unknowingly involved in a large scheme that helps give kids who may not work as hard as others an advantage over those who truly deserve those spots.”
“For that, I am sorry, though I know my word does not mean much to many people at the moment,” he continued. “While the situation I am going through is not a pleasant one, I take comfort in the fact that this might help finally cut down on money and wealth being such a heavy factor in college admissions. Instead, I hope colleges may prioritize an applicants’ character, intellect, and other qualities over everything else.”
