Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman Charged in College Admission Scam

Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman Charged in College Admission Scam

This combination of pictures created on March 12, 2019 shows United States actress Felicity Huffman (L) attending the Showtime Emmy Eve Nominees Celebration in Los Angeles on September 16, 2018 and actress Lori Loughlin arriving at the People's Choice Awards 2017 at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, on January 18, 2017.

On a sport specific level, no one made out better in this scheme (until they got caught) than former Yale women's soccer coach Rudy Meredith, who just so happened to resign in November of a year ago. Payments averaged between $200,000 to $400,000, though in one instance, a parent paid Singer $6.5 million to facilitate their child's admission into college.

Parents would pay Singer to have someone take an SAT or ACT exam for their child or correct the test afterward, Lelling said.

Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to an organization that then facilitated cheating for her daughter on the SATs, the indictment said.

Loughlin, a.k.a. Aunt Becky, apparently paid a total of $500,000 in exchange for having their daughters designated as crew recruits to USC, as evidence in emails from Loughlin.

According to the Texas Tribune, Coach Center, who is accused of taking a $100,000 bribe in 2015 by helping a student gain admission by adding him to the list of tennis team recruits, has been placed on administrative leave.

The mistake was the result of an editor (hi) misreading the press release (sorry Ali!) and we sure do regret the error. Note that this is just a virtual reality set for the Labo , this won't suddenly let you play Breath of the Wild in VR.

Most of the students who benefited from the alleged bribes were not aware of the circumstances of their acceptances, according to ABC.

Prosecutors say parents paid an admissions consultant $25 million from 2011 through February 2019 to bribe coaches and administrators to label their children as recruited athletes to boost their chances of getting into schools.

Huffman was arrested earlier today on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, and Loughlin will be turning herself into authorities in Los Angeles later today. "Why is everything so weird now", another person said.

Charging documents unsealed Tuesday reveal prosecutors charged almost 50 people - including 33 parents, alongside college coaches and Singer's associates - by indictment and complaint in connection with the conspiracy. Huffman allegedly paid $15,000 for her oldest daughter and began the process for her second child but ultimately abandoned the plan because she was anxious a fixed score would "set off alarm bells".

Reps for Huffman and Loughlin did not immediately return PEOPLE's calls for comment.
