Teen Arrested in Japanese Cheating Scandal

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(TOKYO) -- An Internet cheating scandal has rocked Japanese universities, and now a 19-year-old man is in custody.

Police arrested the teen after he admitted to soliciting answers to college entrance exam questions online. News of the Internet postings first surfaced last week and spurred a nationwide manhunt.

Police say the teen used his cell phone to post math and English questions to a popular website during the exam. Users then responded by providing answers. The cheating scandal was so shocking in Japan because it involves four of the country's most prestigious universities. As a result, the education ministry is now considering banning all mobile phones from exam sites.
