According to CNN.com (AP) a Queens DA has filed charges against a college instructor for allegedly taking "cash and wine" to change grades. The instructor is also accused of telling a student to lie before a grand jury. The charges include "computer tampering and forgery." All of the charges are denied by the accused.
What is particularly good to see in this case is that the prosecution is not being advanced by federal authorities. Because of overcriminalization, federal prosecutors often have the discretion to proceed on a wide variety of cases.
