On Wednesday, Georgetown University officials released a statement that said they were expelling two students connected to the college admissions scandal.
One of those students, Adam Semprevivo, has already filed a lawsuit to try and fight his dismissal.
The 21-year-old just finished his junior year at the Washington, DC college, and said he knew nothing about the scheme.
His father, Stephen, has pleaded guilty to paying a college consultant $400,000 to get his son into the school.

A 21-year-old Georgetown University student, whose father has pleaded guilty to paying $400,000 to get him into the school by fraudulent means, filed a lawsuit Wednesday to fight his expulsion from the school.
Adam Semprevivo filed his lawsuit just a few hours before the school announced in a statement that it would be dismissing two current students tied to the nationwide college admissions scandal.
“Applicants to Georgetown affirm that the information and statements contained in their applications are true, correct and complete. Knowingly misrepresenting or falsifying credentials in an application can be cause for rescinding the admission of the student and dismissal from Georgetown,” the school’s statement read.
“Today, we informed two students of our intent to rescind their admission and dismiss them from Georgetown. Each student case was addressed individually and each student was given multiple opportunities to respond and provide information to the University.”
Semprevivo, who is from Los Angeles, just wrapped up his junior year at the school, and his lawyer, David Kenner, told The New York Times that being kicked out of the school is too harsh of a punishment.
