Lori Loughlin Released on $1 Million Bond in College Admission Scandal

Lori Loughlin Released on $1 Million Bond in College Admission Scandal

The Desperate Housewives star and Loughlin - along with approximately 40 others - have been charged with involvement cheating and fraud scandal, which has been labelled as the "largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice". Giannulli posted bond and was released Tuesday.

The actress is accused of making a $15,000 donation to get involved in a college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of their oldest daughter, who reportedly took the SATs in December 2017 and received a 1420, which was a 400 point improvement over her PSAT score.

A federal judge says "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin (LAWK'-lin) can be released after posting $1 million bond in a case in which she and her husband are accused of paying bribes to get their daughters into college.

Loughlin and Huffman are just two of 50 individuals who have been indicted for paying up to $6 million to secure their children spots in top college universities in the nationwide scandal.

The court documents also revealed that a cooperating witness met with Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, at their Los Angeles home and explained to them that he "controlled" a testing center and could have somebody secretly change her daughter's answers, according to AP.

As an Emmy victor and Oscar nominee, Felicity Huffman has been known as one of Hollywood's more versatile actresses.

Around 300 law enforcement agents were involved in the arrests across the U.S. as part of "Operation Varsity Blues".

Court documents said that the couple "agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team-despite the fact that they did not participate in crew-thereby facilitating their admission to USC", People magazine reported.

Neither the coincidence factor, nor the life-imitating-art element ends with Full House, though. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, has not been charged, though an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent stated in an affidavit that he was in the room when Huffman first heard the pitch from a scam insider.

Athletic coaches from Yale, Stanford, USC, Wake Forest and Georgetown, among others, are implicated, as well as parents and exam administrators.

No students were charged, with authorities saying that in many cases the teenagers were unaware of what was going on.

The Emmy victor, 56, was among 46 wealthy folk whom the authorities said had resorted to fraud, bribes and lies to get their children admitted to elite colleges.

A spokesperson for Loughlin had no comment on the charges Tuesday.

Several defendants, including Huffman, were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
