Fake diploma could land you in jail

By CANDACE HECKMAN
P-I REPORTER

Not only would it become illegal for people to lie on their resumes about their academic credentials, but according to a bill lawmakers passed today, the move could land that liar in jail.

State senators unanimously amended and approved a bill that would make issuing or using a fake or otherwise unaccredited degree a class C felony, a crime of fraud that could warrant five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

The new legislation also makes it illegal to lie orally, as well as in writing.

"When they're using them, they're actually perpetuating a fraud," said state Sen. Mark Schoesler, a Republican from Eastern Washington who originally introduced legislation in the Senate that would criminalize both issuing and using bogus degrees and diplomas.

1. Jackass Republican shitstain from Eastern Washington. . .check this out!
Official Transcripts are a legal document.

I can buy a degree from Degrees-R-Us anytime. If I don't have the official transcripts to back it up, it's just a piece of fancy toilet paper.

What a fucking douchebag! Only in Eastern Washington! Thank G-d I didn't move to Spokane! Nothing against the smart people up there, but this asshole is an embarassment!
