Former College Official Convicted Of Faking Transcripts For Money

A former official at New York City's Touro College has been convicted on charges of creating and falsifying student transcripts for money.

Andrique Baron of Elmont, Long Island, was found guilty Tuesday in Manhattan of computer tampering, bribe receiving and falsifying business records.

Baron was convicted on most of the 36 charges and faces up to four years in prison when sentenced by Justice Thomas Farber on July 13.

Prosecutor Jonathan Lenzner said he will recommend up to 16 years.

The 36-year-old Baron was Touro's admissions director at its Manhattan School of Career and Applied Studies. He was one of four Touro officials accused of accepting thousands of dollars from six students and non-students.

One case is pending.
