Kenneth Wainstein says academic fraud at UNC Chapel Hill began more than 20 years ago. The former federal prosecutor detailed the findings of his eight month investigation Wednesday. It’s the latest in a series of investigations that marks one of the worst scandals in the school’s 225-year history. Jeff Tiberii of WUNC reports that for the first time, the school conceded this is an academic and an athletic issue.
