Fuller House's Lori Laughlin charged in college admissions scheme

Meghan Mc Cain Rips Lori Loughlin's Husband Amid College Admissions Scam Scandal

A Florida prep school administrator has been suspended from his school after he was accused of taking college admissions tests for students as part of a scheme in which wealthy parents bribed coaches and others to get their children into elite universities. According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit, the scheme involved getting students admitted into colleges such as Georgetown, UCLA, USC, Stanford, University of San Diego, University of Texas at Austin, Wake Forest and Yale. 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.

After being arrested early Tuesday morning, a distraught Felicity Huffman appeared in court and did not enter a plea.

She was among dozens swept up in what prosecutors called the largest college admissions fraud scheme they'd ever seen.

Huffman, best known for her role on TV's "Desperate Housewives", is accused of paying $15,000 to an organization that then facilitated cheating for her daughter on the SATs, the indictment said.

It was unclear how many children benefited from the scheme, though investigators said more parents and coaches may yet be charged.

Documents say Riddell took entrance exams for students or replaced their answers with his own.

On a call with a wealthy parent, prosecutors said, Singer summed up his business thusly: "What we do is help the wealthiest families in the USA get their kids into school.my families want a guarantee".

On Tuesday, some social media users defended her, saying that she might not have been aware of the scheme.

In each case, they allegedly took photos of their daughters on rowing machines to make it appear as if they were, in fact, rowers, and submitted these images as part of fake athletic profiles. Huffman's husband, actor William H. Macy, was not.

John Vandemoor, a former Stanford University sailing coach, is also scheduled to plead guilty to racketeering conspiracy charges.

An attorney for Loughlin did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment. Meredith, authorities say, accepted bribes to bring Yale applicants onto the team "regardless of their athletic ability". "Can you tell us how to proceed?"
