I have to admit, I derived an unseemly amount of satisfaction from this story.
He was the kind of school administrator some college students might have considered themselves lucky to encounter, someone who was willing to raise grades issued by professors when the students’ marks fell short of graduation requirements…Mr. Koutsoutis, 56, who was director of executive programs at the college’s Zicklin School of Business, appeared in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Wednesday and pleaded guilty to 21 felony forgery charges and 10 misdemeanor charges of falsifying business records.
He received no money or favors for making the changes, according to court papers. When Justice Larry Stephen asked him to explain his motivation, Mr. Koutsoutis quietly said that he just wanted to give the students their best chances to succeed.
