BOSTON (AP) — A California real estate developer has been sentenced to one month in prison for paying $75,000 to cheat on his daughter's college entrance exam.

Robert Flaxman was sentenced Friday in Boston's federal court. The 63-year-old Los Angeles resident pleaded guilty in May to a single count of fraud and conspiracy in a deal with prosecutors.

Authorities say Flaxman paid $75,000 to have a test proctor feed his daughter answers on her ACT exam in 2016. They say she used the score to get into an undisclosed college that suspended her for a semester after the scheme was uncovered.

Prosecutors had recommended eight months in prison. Flaxman's lawyers pushed for supervised release and community service.
