BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn jury has convicted two people for operating fake nursing schools in the borough and in Queens. 

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says the suspects defrauded more than 500 students out of upwards of $5 million to attend programs they claimed would qualify them for careers in nursing. 

Evidence shows that the fake schools operated between April 2006 and February 2011. 

The defendants now face up to 20 years in prison.
