A federal jury found two parents guilty Friday in the college admissions scandal known as “Operation Varsity Blues.” Jurors convicted John Wilson and Gamal Abdelaziz on all charges, including conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit bribery, in order to gain spots for their children at the University of Southern California under the guise of athletic recruitment. Wilson is a private equity financier and former Staples and Gap executive, and Abdelaziz is a former Wynn casino executive. They face up to 20 years in prison and will be sentenced in February.
