Susan Su-Jury Finds Guilty on all counts for running Sham University called Tri-Valley University

Original post made by Tri-Valley University Guilty, Downtown, on Mar 24, 2014

Web Link from the Contra Costa Times reports that after two days of jury deliberation, Susan Xiao-Ping Su has been found guilty of all charges in association with the visa mill called Tri-Valley University.

Tri-Valley University operated at 4455 Stoneridge Drive starting in late October 2008, but the city manager (Fialho)/city planning director (Dolan)in two city hearings in December 2008 (Planning Commission) and February 2009 (City Council) characterized the business location as a 'tutoring facility' to both city legislative bodies (Planning Commission, City Council). These documents are available on the city's website under 'public records.'

Tri-Valley University then moved to school district offices located at 4665 Bernal Avenue, the headquarters for the Pleasanton Unified School District in early summer 2009. The assistant superintendent of the Pleasanton Unified School District did not reveal in the board report published September 8, 2009 that the university was not accredited, was not a non-profit, and was not registered to operate in the State of California.

Other locations include a location on Quarry Lane and two office suites on Boulder Court.

Sentencing is scheduled to occur in June. Stay tuned for more updates.
