Student Charged With Stealing $45,000 in Grants From Harvard

 

Arraignment is set for Tuesday 5-17-2010 for a Harvard senior who faked his records to get into Harvard. He is charged with fraudulently obtaining grants, financial aid and scholarships based on faked student transfers and plagiarized school work.

Adam Wheeler claimed he attended Phillips Academy in Andover and also MIT. He continued the charade until his senior year when some of the research grants he applied for researched him. The Rhodes and Fulbright scholarships were not impressed.

Adam B. Wheeler, 23, is to be tried in the Woburn Superior Court on some 20 charges. He basically dropped out of Harvard rather than attend disciplinary hearings at the school.

  Underhandedness does not pay.  
 
Why do that and throw away reputation and certificates for a great education? Stupid.

  @ Trial  
 
Why try a guy in a court for capital crimes (like murder and bank robbery) for plagiarism?? There is a court in Cambridge. Can´t mess with Harvard.

should hire this guy. He appears to have talent in bucking the system.

  let him finish!  
 
he´s already a senior. he lied in order to attend harvard and spent the grant money accordingly. he didnt take money intended for education and split.

sounds like he was a little greedy going for the Rhodes scholarship however. undergrad degree from harvard wouldve been a score in itself.

He sounds like most of the 21st Century MBAs that are running companies. He´d fit right in at most big capitalistic American corporations. They would have loved another manger with no soul. Hell, George Bush probably considers him a hero. Adam Wheeler is probably a big wheel with the Skull & Bones Society, too. LOL This kid is the poster child for fraud and unethical behavior. That seems to be the national pastime in the US these days.

Ok, Skull & Bones is at Yale. I stand corrected.

If his name was Barrack Obama it wouldn´t matter how he got the money for Harvard. We still don´t know who paid for the annointed one´s education.

  Obviously, he wanted to become a lawyer!

...always used to say never to lie about anything on your resume, etc because it could easily come back and bite you in the ass, even decades later. Especially if you achieve notoriety of any sort.

  @adhemar  
 
Who paid for your education? None of my business?
Exactly!
