A U.S. Attorney in Boston has unsealed a federal indictment showing “Full House” star Lori Loughlin and “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman paid big bucks to colleges to get their children in.
According to NBC News, Huffman is said to have paid a fake proctor $15,000 dollars to correct her daughter’s SAT answers.
Loughlin paid half a million dollars to have her two daughters designed as University of Southern California crew recruits, despite the fact they don’t row.
In all 49 people, including several coaches from high academic colleges and universities, are facing charges in part of this $25 million scheme.
According to investigators, parents paid a shell company called Key Worldwide Foundation who then funneled the money to either college athletic coaches or test proctors who would then alter test scores in order to make the students eligible at their desired university.
Colleges include Yale, Georgetown, USC, Wake Forest, Texas, UCLA, Stanford, and San Diego.
