A man who was convicted of identity fraud for faking his way into Harvard University was ordered back to jail because he admitting violating his probation by listing the University on a job resume. Adam Wheeler got into Harvard by falsely claiming he attended an exclusive prep school and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was sentenced to two years in jail and ten years probation last year but never served time. Part of his probation was a stipulation he couldn't represent himself as a Harvard student or a graduate. Now prosecutors will ask a judge to make him serve his full sentence.
