She is among a group of Los Angeles parents who have been accused of trying to get their children into top colleges as part of a scheme that involved doctoring exam results and bribing college officials.
On Tuesday morning (March 12, 2019), actress Felicity Huffman who is allegedly involved in a college admissions cheating scandal, was reportedly greeted by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents with their guns drawn Tuesday morning at her Los Angeles home. The payment was allegedly disguised as a donation that would allow the charity to "move forward with our plans to provide educational and self-enrichment programs to disadvantaged youth".
Lelling said, via CNN: "This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud".
The scheme aimed to take advantage of the two years of the anxiety parents across the United States often endure as they put high school-age children through the standardised tests needed to gain entry into heavily competitive colleges and universities.
Former "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman is also an alleged conspirator, and is facing similar charges. Loughlin has projects slated through November in our neighbor to the North, after which the judge has ordered her to surrender her passport on December 19.
The actors were named among a group of 33 parents who allegedly paid millions to bribe coaches at elite universities to reportedly recruit their children and gain admission.
Loughlin is slated to appear in federal court on conspiracy charges and will be booked at Los Angeles' Metropolitan Detention Center.
Wake Forest said it had placed head volleyball coach Bill Ferguson on administrative leave after he was among the coaches accused of accepting bribes.
Huffman also contemplated running a similar scam to help her younger daughter, but ultimately did not pursue it, the complaint alleges. Giannulli appeared Tuesday in federal court and was released on $1 million bail; his next court appearance is March 29 in Boston.
"Wealthy parents paid Singer about 25 million dollars in total", Lelling said.
On a day that's most likely much more solemn than he originally predicted, William H. Macy turned 69 on Wednesday, one day after his wife, Felicity Huffman, was arrested for her alleged involvement in a nationwide college admissions scam. The actress faces a felony charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
