Actress Lori Loughlin surrenders as college admissions fallout spreads

Lori Loughlin When Calls the Heart

According to the Los Angeles Times, the actress was taken into custody at about 6:00 am local time when Federal Bureau of Investigation agents showed up at her California home with guns drawn.

The consultant also hired ringers to take college entrance exams for students and paid off insiders at testing centers to correct students' answers, they said.

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

The mastermind of the scheme, William "Rick" Singer, on Tuesday pleaded guilty to racketeering charges.

Loughlin and fellow actress Felicity Huffman headline the list of some 50 people charged in documents unveiled in Boston that describe a scheme to cheat the admissions process at eight sought-after schools.

By also shared the address of his dad's shop along with its operating hours and Instagram handle in case anyone wanted to stop by. A little doughnut shop was shown a lot of love in Missouri City, Texas, after a post on social media touched hearts.

Parents paid Singer big money from 2011 up until just last month to bribe coaches and administrators to falsely make their children look like star athletes to boost their chances of getting accepted, prosecutors said. In an open letter, Mamet said: "That a parent's zeal for her children's future may have overcome her better judgment for a moment is not only unfortunate, it is, I know we parents would agree, a universal phenomenon". She was promptly released after posting a $1-million bond, putting her L.A. home up as collateral.

Loughlin, who is known for portraying Aunt Becky on "Full House" and for starring in numerous Hallmark Channel movies, will appear in court again in Boston on March 29.

Actress Felicity Huffman has been forced to hand over her passport to authorities following her indictment for her alleged role in an elite college bribery scheme.

Loughlin, of Full House fame, and Huffman, whose credits include the hit ABC show Desperate Housewives, are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Those involved could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted. Macy was not charged, but authorities did not say why.

In particular, the coaches worked at such schools as Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, Wake Forest, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California and the University of California at Los Angeles, faking profiles of the applicants, regardless of their actual abilities in sports.

The colleges themselves are not targets, the prosecutor said.

In the meantime, many other celebs have taken to social media to either criticise and condemn the parents or roast them over the scandal.

Three other cooperating witnesses, including a former head coach of women's soccer at Yale, have agreed to plead guilty, prosecutors said.
