Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman Charged in College Admission Scam

Prosecutors alleged Huffman, Loughlin and 31 other parents from "wealth and privilege" paid a collective $25 million to get their children into colleges.

"The federal government has alleged that USC is a victim in a scheme perpetrated against the university by a long-time Athletics Department employee, one current coach and three former coaching staff, who were allegedly involved in a college admissions scheme and have been charged by the government on multiple charges", Austin said.

The lawyers said Singer offered people up to $75,000 to take college entrance exams for students.They also accused him of paying college coaches to accept students as sports players even if they had never played the sport.

Federal authorities have charged college coaches and others in a sweeping admissions bribery case in federal court, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Before Felicity Huffman was indicted as part of a nationwide college admission cheating scandal, the actress was busy visiting college campuses with her daughter.

CNN is working to get comment from the actresses' representatives. Meredith was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud and honest services wire fraud.

Parents would pay Singer to have someone take an SAT or ACT exam for their child or correct the test afterward, Lelling said. Others arrested included Huffman - known for her role on Desperate Housewives - as well as corporate executives, university coaches, standardized test administrators and other parents, according to a report by CBS News. The cooperator told investigators that Huffman and her spouse "agreed to the plan".

On Tuesday, March 12, federal prosecutors in Boston released almost 300 pages of allegations in the operation dubbed "Varsity Blues".

Felicity Huffman (L) and William H. Macy attend the 70th Emmy Awards at Microsoft Theater on September 17, 2018 in Los Angeles, California.

Authorities said most parents try to hide the plan from their child, but there were cases in which children did know about it.

The documents also allege that some defendants created fake athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes and get them into college.

Singer was scheduled to plead guilty Tuesday afternoon to charges of racketeering, money laundering, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice.

Also, federal authorities allege Huffman and her husband "made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000...to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter".
