Felicity Huffman & Lori Loughlin Caught In An College Admissions Scandal
Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among the parents and coaches caught in a brazen college admissions scandal.
The U.S. Department of Justice says this is the largest college cheating scam it has ever prosecuted.
They’ve charged 50 people, but say this investigation isn’t over.
The feds say rich and powerful parents paid up to $6.5-million to get their kids into elite schools.
Huffman was arrested Tuesday morning.
She’s accused of paying $15-thousand for someone to secretly change the answers on her daughter’s SAT exam.
Loughlin and her husband allegedly agreed to pay $500-thousand for both their daughters to be recruited to the University of Southern California’s rowing team, though neither girl played the sport.
The ring leader of the alleged scam pleased guilty in court on Tuesday to four federal charges. Meanwhile, coaches at schools like Yale, Stanford and Wake Forest are also facing charges.
But right now, the students are not being charged, though prosecutors say they are considering it.
