Gordon Caplan, the former co-chairman of Willkie Farr & Gallagher accused of paying a bribe to rig his daughter’s ACT score, pleaded guilty in Boston federal court on Tuesday to a count of conspiracy. He faces a recommended sentence of eight months in prison.

The former law firm leader’s guilty plea did not come as a surprise. Caplan on April 5 announced his intention to plead guilty. The details of his agreement with prosecutors were publicly filed a few days later.
