'Full House' to big house in college scheme? Experts differ

Will 'Aunt Becky' and other parents charged with college scam see prison time? Experts differ on the probability

BOSTON -- Could Aunt Becky be headed to prison? Experts say it may go either way.

Some lawyers say a number of the wealthy parents accused of paying bribes to get their kids into elite universities may get short stints behind bars, if convicted, to send a message that the privileged are not above the law.

Others predict that most, if not all, will end up with probation and a fine, particularly if they quickly agree to accept responsibility and cooperate.

They face a charge that carries up to 20 years in prison, although first-time offenders would get far less than that.
