American College of Forensic Studies (ACFS) located just east of Koreatown’s formal borders, in the Westlake district.

The owner Hee-Sun “Leo” Shim, 51, who allegedly owned and managed the school, was arrested near his Beverly Hills home by ICE agents on March 11, 2015.

Also arrested were two employees who allegedly assisted with operation and management of the schools, Hyung-Chan “Steve” Moon, 39, and Eun-Young “Jamie” Choi, 35, both of Los Angeles.

The indictment charges Shim, Moon and Choi with conspiring to commit immigration fraud. Shim is charged with 13 counts of use or possession of an immigration document procured by fraud, and Moon and Choi are each charged with one count of the same offense. Shim is charged with three counts of encouraging illegal residence, as well as two counts of money laundering.

In exchange for a form that makes sudents eligible for an F-1 visa, a student would make “tuition” payments of as much as $1,800 to “enroll” for six months in one of the schools.
