Lori Loughlin Free After Posting $1 Million Bond In College Admissions Scam

The FBI says actress Lori Loughlin has been taken into custody in connection with a scheme in which wealthy parents paid bribes to get their children into top colleges. Giannulli was released Tuesday after posting a $1 million bond.

The actress was allowed to retain her passport for her work on a film project in British Columbia, NBC News reported.

Aunt Becky merely went along with ringleader Uncle Jesse's weird lies to the admission's board before eventually confessing their deception, while Loughlin allegedly paid $500,000 to scam her daughters onto USC's crew team, even though neither were rowers. Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, 69, have two daughters together, Sofia, 18, and Georgia, 16. Singer and several other employees of his outfits accepted some $25 million dollars in bribes from parents between 2011 and 2018 "to guarantee their children's admission to elite schools", said US Attorney Andrew Lelling.

On a call with a wealthy parent, prosecutors said, Mr Singer summed up his business.

Three cooperating witnesses helped the federal authorities build their case against Singer and the participants in the scheme, which reportedly included recordings of Huffman and emails from Loughlin. The judge specified that she would be allowed to speak to her daughters and husband about the charges, but to no one else connected with the case.

Huffman posted a $250,000 bond after an appearance in federal court in Los Angeles.

The two are among 50 people charged for taking part in the largest such scam in US history, which the scheme's mastermind said in court documents steered some 800 students into elite universities including Yale, Georgetown and Stanford by cheating the admissions process.

The "Fuller House" star surrendered to authorities on Wednesday morning, and was in Canada shooting the Hallmark show "When Calls the Heart" when arrests were made.

A Hallmark Channel spokeswoman said the network hasn't decided what effect, if any, her arrest will have on programming.

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.

In many cases, the students were not aware their parents had arranged for the cheating, prosecutors said, although in other cases they knowingly took part.

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

Stanford sailing coach John Vandemoer on Tuesday pleaded guilty in Boston.

The colleges themselves are not targets, the prosecutor said.
