A current Gannon University administrator has been federally indicted in a visa fraud case that allegedly happened while he worked at Mercyhurst University.
47-year-old Daniel Cabanillas is charged with two felony counts of visa fraud. Prosecutors allege he submitted false information on a visa request saying that a student had been admitted to a master’s program at Mercyhurst when he knew the student had not.
Cabanillas is well-known in the Erie area for numerous singing appearances he has made over the years. Neither university nor Cabinillas are commenting on the case.
