EX-FINANCIAL AID DIRECTOR OF MANHATTAN COLLEGE GETS PRISON TERM FOR DEFRAUDING DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION

JAMES B. COMEY, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that RAYMOND B. KRULL, the former Financial Aid Director of Manhattan College in the Bronx, was sentenced in White Plains federal court today to 23 months in prison for defrauding the U.S. Department of Education out of more than $200,000. The sentence, which was imposed by United States District Judge CHARLES L. BRIEANT, included an order of restitution in the amount of $167,670.

KRULL previously pled guilty to a one-count felony charging him with student financial assistance fraud. KRULL admitted in a court proceeding that, while he was the Financial Aid Director for Manhattan College in the Bronx, he completed a series of fraudulent student loan applications in his own name and received in excess of $160,000 to which he was not entitled.

Mr. COMEY praised the investigative efforts and assistance of the Department of Education, Office of the Inspector General and the FBI.

Assistant United States Attorney JONATHAN LEIKEN is in charge of the prosecution.
