A California licensed lawyer, media executive and Harvard Law School graduate, whose husband is a former San Diego prosecutor, is among those facing accusations of using bribes to win their children’s way into prestigious schools across the country.

Elisabeth Kimmel, the longtime president of San Diego-based Midwest Television, was charged Tuesday in relation to her efforts to get her daughter into Georgetown University and her son into the University of Southern California. Her husband, Gregory Kimmel, has not been charged, but is prominently mentioned in charging documents.
