Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin Among Dozens Charged In Nationwide College Admissions Scheme

Other prominent parents charged by the Boston U.S. attorney's office include Felicity Huffman, the actress who starred in "Desperate Housewives"; Gordon Caplan, the co-chairman of worldwide law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher; and Bill McGlashan Jr., who heads a buyout investment arm of private equity firm TPG Capital.

Judge Steve Kim set her bail at $1,000,000, the same amount as her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who is also being charged. Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, 69, have two daughters together, Sofia, 18, and Georgia, 16.

Loughlin turned herself in to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Wednesday morning and is scheduled for a court appearance in the afternoon, spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.

Following the arrest, Deadline reports the actress has been released on bail having to pay a $250,000 bond and surrendering her passport whilst also staying at the Los Angeles courthouse for the time being.

According to court documents, cited by AP, Huffman paid $15,000 that she disguised as a charitable donation so her daughter could take part in the college entrance-exam cheating scam.

William "Rick" Singer, 58, has been charged with operating a racketeering scheme through his business Edge College & Career Network, which serviced an array of rich people like Hollywood celebrities and CEOs.

Her attorney declined to comment.

Aaron Hernandez’s Murder Conviction Reinstated By Mass
Under the new order, if a defendant passes before their appeal, the conviction stands without any affirmation or nullification. Hernandez's attorney had previously argued the legal doctrine should remain intact, saying juries make mistakes.

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

Loughlin became famous as the wholesome Aunt Becky in the 1980s and '90s sitcom "Full House".

The coaches worked at schools such as Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, Wake Forest, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California and the University of California at Los Angeles.

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

Stanford's sailing coach John Vandemoer pleaded guilty Tuesday in Boston. None of the schools or the students have been charged in the case.

The colleges themselves are not targets, the prosecutor said.

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