College Professor Still Getting Paid After Fraud Arrest

A tenured Medgar Evers College professor accused of selling sham health care certificates to students for years is still being paid after being pulled from teaching at the Crown Heights school, the college said Monday.

A lecturer in the college’s Biology Department was charged with fraud, corruption and obstruction offenses in Manhattan federal court for his four-year scam in which he taught unauthorized health care courses on the college grounds, then billed students up to $1,000 for fraudulent certificates he made himself, prosecutors said.

Faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
