The director (that devil) made them do it

The latest argument to get document tampering charges thrown out against Malcolm Price Laboratory School parents and grandparents is that state law didn't even allow it to charge tuition. But an earlier contention by the eight people accused of trying to dodge higher tuition remains the most troubling aspect of this case. They're simply saying they falsified their addresses because David Smith, former director of the University of Northern Iowa-run school, told them to do it. Rather than take any responsibility, they are demonizing someone else, as though they had no choice. They are likely telling the truth (especially since he was doing the same thing), but that doesn't make it a virtuous defense.
