Additional charges are being added for the latest parent accused in the sweeping college admissions bribery scheme.

Federal prosecutors said Tuesday that Xiaoning Sui faces new charges of international money laundering and additional fraud charges. She was charged Sept. 17 with a single count of conspiracy and fraud.

Sui is accused of paying $400,000 to get her son into the University of California, Los Angeles, as a fake soccer recruit. New charging documents say the payments came from Canada, where Sui lives.

Authorities say Sui was arrested in Spain last week and is being extradited to Boston. It was unclear if she has an attorney.

Her son was admitted to UCLA in 2018 with a 25% scholarship. UCLA says it took "immediate corrective action" when it learned of the case.

A Los Angeles business executive has been sentenced to four months imprisonment for paying $250,000 to get his son admitted to the University of Southern California as a fake athlete.

Fifty-three-year-old Devin Sloane was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to a single count of fraud and conspiracy in May. He is the second parent to be sentenced in a sweeping college admissions scandal.

Prosecutors recommended a year and a day in prison and a $75,000 fine. His lawyers suggested three years of supervised release, a fine and 2,000 hours of community service.

Authorities say Sloane helped fabricate documents portraying his son as a water polo star even though he had never played the sport.

Sloane previously said he wanted to help his son but "failed miserably by doing too much" and "going too far."
