Michelle Janavs, the heir to the Hot Pockets fortune, has been sentenced for her role in the now-infamous college admissions scandal.
On Tuesday in Boston federal court, Janvas was sentenced to five months in prison, ordered to serve two years of supervised release, and ordered to complete 200 hours of community service upon her release. She was also ordered to pay a $250,000 fine.
Last October, the 48-year-old pleaded guilty to paying $300,000 in bribes to help her two daughters cheat on college entrance exams. The funds were also shelled out to secure admission to the University of Southern California for one of the girls as a fake recruit for the school’s beach volleyball team.
More than 50 people have been charged in the nationwide federal investigation, where wealthy parents paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to get their children into some of the nation’s top colleges. Some of those prestigious parents include Full House actress Lori Loughlin and Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.
Janavs’s family is responsible for founding Chef America, the food manufacturer that created Hot Pockets. Nestlé bought the company for $2.6 billion in 2002.
