BRYAN (November 11, 2010)—A former Texas A&M University administrator who admitted he padded his resume has been fined after pleading guilty to a fraud charge.

Alexander Kemos, who resigned in June, on Wednesday pleaded guilty in Bryan to a misdemeanor charge of using a fraudulent, substandard or fictitious degree and was fined $2000.

He also must pay court costs.

Kemos attorney Jim James says his client admits adding to his
resume in violation of the law and regrets the incident.

James says the 50-year-old Kemos also says no one at A&M knew of the false portions of his resume.

Kemos, who was hired in 2009, was senior vice president for
administration.

He falsely claimed to be a former Navy SEAL with advanced degrees from Tufts University.

The incident has sparked Texas A&M to more closely audit its hiring practices.
