Documents reveal that Isabelle Henriquez gloated about cheating on the SATs after her parents paid more than $1 million dollars to get her into Georgetown University.

Isabelle is the daughter of Manuel Henriquez, chairman and CEO of Hercules Technology Growth Capital, and Elizabeth Henriquez. 

The couple were among the 50 people, including Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, who have been accused of paying bribes to get their children into America's top colleges.

And now Isabelle, currently a junior at Georgetown, could face expulsion.

Henriquez and his wife allegedly paid at least $425,000 to Key Worldwide Foundation, which was run by William Rick Singer. 

Singer is the alleged mastermind behind the bribery scandal. Documents claim that since 2011, Singer has received $25million from parents to bribe individuals who could pave their children's way into elite schools including Yale, Stanford, and UCLA.

In his biography on the website for the Newport Beach-based Key Foundation, Singer is heralded for his ability to get children into the college of their choice.

Singer is also praised for 'helping students discover their life passion, and guiding them along with their families through the complex college admissions maze'.

Most of those charged either paid to get higher SAT scores or faked an athletic resume that, with the participation of a bribed college coach, helped the children get accepted to a college as a team's recruit. 

In many instances the children were unaware that their parents had paid these bribes, according to federal documents. 

But this doesn't seem to be the case with Isabelle. 

Henriquez and his wife allegedly paid Singer $25,000 to have a 'proctor' sit with her during the SAT exam in October 2015. 

The couple paid for the proctor to be flown to San Francisco to help Isabelle with the college admissions test at her private all-girls Catholic school, Notre Dame High School, in Belmont.

Charging documents claim that 'unbeknownst to the school', the proctor 'sat side-by-side' with Isabelle during the exam and 'provided her with answers to the questions'. 

'After the exam, he "gloated" with Elizabeth Henriquez and her daughter about the fact that they had cheated and gotten away with it,' states the complaint, which does not refer to Isabelle by name. 

Isabelle received a score of 1900 out of 2400, which was a 320-point improvement on her previous score. 

But her parents didn't allegedly stop at her SAT scores when it came to ensuring their daughter would be admitted to the prestigious Washington DC school. 

Henriquez and his wife also paid Gordon Ernst, the school's tennis coach, $950,000 to designate their daughter as a recruit for the team, according to the documents.

This was despite the fact that Isabelle did not play a single tennis tournament in high school. 

Isabelle wrote in her application that she played 'club tennis' all through high school for 20 hours per week and 52 weeks per year, the documents claim.

She claimed to have a 'Top 50 ranking' in the United States Tennis Association Junior Girls Tennis for her sophomore through senior years of high school, and said she was on the UTSA All-Academic Team for tennis during her junior and senior years as well. 

'In fact, records obtained from the USTA do not show that she played at any USTA tournaments in high school,' the documents state.  

'At her best, she appears to have ranked 207th in Northern California in the under-12 girls division, with an overall win/loss record of 2-8.'

Isabelle was allegedly encouraged to rewrite her college application essay to reflect her so-called passion and commitment to tennis. 

In the essay, Isabelle writes about practicing for 'three to four hours a day...with the hopes of becoming successful enough to play college tennis, especially at Georgetown'. 

In a separate letter to Ernst, Isabelle claimed she had been 'really successful this summer playing tennis around the country'.

'I am looking forward to having a chance to be part of the Georgetown tennis team and make a positive contribution to your team's success,' she added. 

After Isabelle was admitted to Georgetown in May 2016, the Henriquez Family Trust 'donated' $400,000 to Key Worldwide Foundation. 

Isabelle is currently a Spanish and Iberian studies major at Georgetown and a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. 

She is the president of 'Hoya Helpers', a tutoring organization for middle school students in Georgetown, and also studied abroad in Spain, according to her LinkedIn page.

Isabelle previously interned at her father's company, and is listed as a current investment banking intern at Compass Point Research & Trading, LLC and an incoming summer wealth management analyst at Jeffries Financial Group. 

A blog entry obtained by Daily Beast found that Isabelle described herself as 'very independent and not dependent on others when I need things'. 

'I also find that I have a good moral compass,' she added.   

Georgetown officials said they are reviewing details of the indictment and 'will be taking appropriate action'.
