Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin and college coaches indicted in admissions bribery case

Actresses, CEO's among those arrested in college admissions scam

In court papers obtained from Massachusetts District Court, Loughlin, 54, and Desperate Housewives star Huffman, 56, were hit with arrest warrants for "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud" on Monday. According to multiple reports, the actress landed at LAX on Tuesday during the court hearing. Coaches from Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, USC, Wake Forest and other schools were allegedly involved. However, at the time of this writing, Loughlin, 54, has not yet entered police custody, as she's reportedly "out of the country", as Christina Dilorio-Sterling, the spokesperson for the United States Attorney's Office for the District of MA, shared with Radar.

Lori Laughlin, star of the Netflix original series Fuller House and classic sitcom Full House, has been arrested and charged for her involvement in a college admissions scheme, according to a report from Deadline.

Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were charged along with almost 50 other people Tuesday in a scheme in which wealthy parents bribed college coaches and insiders at testing centres to help get their children into some of the most elite schools in the country, federal prosecutors said.

Prosecutors are saying the scheme was orchestrated by William Rick Singer, who is the founder of a for-profit college preparation business based in California and disguised as a charity.

According to documents which have been unsealed, as reported by the BBC, Felicity Huffman made a "charitable contribution" of $15,000 (£11.5k) on behalf of her eldest daughter.

Prosecutors also said parents paid an admissions consultant upwards of $25 million from 2011 through February 2019 to bribe coaches/administrators to label their kids as recruited athletes to increase their chances of getting into the schools mentioned (above).

The coaches would allegedly arrange a fake profile that listed the prospective student as an athlete, and exam administrators would either hire proctors to take the test or correct the answers of a student. In return, Loughlin's two daughters were accepted to USC as "recruits to the USC crew team-despite the fact that they did not participate in crew". Mossimo was also charged in the indictment. Only time will tell, but there are bound to be implications on Loughlin's career.
