Gordon Caplan, the former co-chairman of Willkie Farr & Gallagher who pleaded guilty to working with a crooked college admissions consultant to rig his daughter’s ACT score, asked a Boston federal judge Thursday for a sentence of no prison time

Eight months is the bottom of the guidelines range agreed to in Caplan’s guilty plea.
