Meghan Mc Cain Rips Lori Loughlin's Husband Amid College Admissions Scam Scandal

Numerous accused reportedly paid significant bribes to get their children into the universities of their choice, such as Yale, Stanford, and Georgetown.

Prosecutors say Loughlin, who starred on "Full House", Huffman, who starred on "Desperate Housewives", and 42 other people, including corporate executives and college coaches, paid between $10,000 and $75,000 to have people pretend to be their college-aged children and take SAT tests and other college admissions tests in their place.

Lelling said, via CNN: "This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud".

He went on: "For every student admitted through fraud, an honest, genuinely talented student was rejected".

A total of 50 people, including parents and coaches, are embroiled in what's being called the largest-ever admissions bribery case.

Moreover, at least nine athletic coaches and 33 parents, many of them prominent in law, finance, fashion, and other fields, were charged.

Both were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud in indictments unsealed Tuesday in federal court in Boston.

Macy was in the Los Angeles courtroom late Tuesday afternoon when a judge ruled Huffman could be released on $250,000 bond. "Your parents' actions robbed a student from a position at this university".

Huffman is accused of hatching a plan with Singer and her husband, William H. Macy, in the couple's home.

Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, agreed to pay bribes of US$500,000 in a scheme that involved cheating on college entrance exams to help their daughters, Isabella and Olivia Giannulli, get into the University of Southern California, according to court documents.

In addition to her Instagram page, with more than 1 million followers, Olivia Giannulli, 19, manages a YouTube channel with almost 2 million subscribers. He'd charge parents exorbitant sums for his work.

On a call with a wealthy parent, prosecutors said, Singer summed up his business thusly: "What we do is help the wealthiest families in the USA get their kids into school.my families want a guarantee".

How did the alleged scheme work?

The colleges listed include Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California.

The student would then take the test with one of Singer's paid-off administrators at locations in Houston and California, where his proctors would then change answers as needed to boost the scores.

Singer facilitated the cheating by advising students to seek "extended time on the exams, including by having their children purport to have learning disabilities in order to obtain medical documentation that ACT", the indictment says.

None of the children were charged on Tuesday. Most weren't even involved in sports. UCLA suspended its soccer coach, and Wake Forest did the same with its volleyball coach.
