Kind of a crazy story to wake up to this morning. Actresses including Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are just 2 of 50 actresses/actors, CEOs and other arrested in a college admissions cheating scam according to TMZ.
"Court records show the actresses and others allegedly paid hefty bribes -- as much as $6 MILLION -- to get their kids into various schools, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California."
Charges - to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
"The alleged scam was reportedly unearthed after authorities found a California businessman who ran an operation helping students get into the college of their choice. Authorities say parents would pay the man a predetermined amount which he would funnel to an SAT or ACT administrator or a college athletic coach."
Felicity Huffman and her husband, William H Macy, apparently paid $15k "participate in a college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of their eldest daughter". She is currently in custody and expected to be released.
"As for Loughlin, she and her husband --Mossimo Giannulli, the founder of Mossimo clothing -- allegedly paid $500,000 to have their 2 daughters designated as recruits for the crew team at USC ... despite the fact they did not actually participate in crew.However, the feds say Mossimo sent action photos of their daughters on rowing machines. Mossimo was also charged in the indictment."
