Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin indicted in alleged Ivy League college admissions scheme

Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are two actresses named among the 50 people involved in what's being called the biggest college admission scam in history.

"For every student admitted through fraud, an honest, genuinely talented student was rejected".

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.

Loughlin and Giannulli allegedly paid a total of $500,000 so that their two daughters would be designated as recruits to the University of Southern California's crew team, though neither girl participated in the sport.

Felicity Huffman, who is one of many individuals charged in a massive college admissions scam, was already arrested by the time news of the case reached the public on Tuesday.

In addition to her starring role in When Calls the Heart, Loughlin also headlines the Garage Sale Mysteries franchise on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

The colleges themselves are not targets, the prosecutor said.

Singer ended up cooperating with investigators a year ago, helping them record incriminating conversations he had with Loughlin, Henriquez and other parents.

Singer pleaded guilty and his lawyer, Donald Heller, said that his client intends to cooperate fully with prosecutors and is "remorseful and contrite, and wants to move on with his life".

Mr Singer would agree with parents beforehand roughly what score they wanted the child to get.

None of the children were charged on Tuesday.

Mr Singer also allegedly helped parents stage photographs of their children playing sports or even Photoshopped children's faces onto images of athletes downloaded from the internet to exaggerate their athletic credentials.

John Vandemoor, a former Stanford University sailing coach, is also scheduled to plead guilty to racketeering conspiracy charges. Several of the coaches accused of accepting bribes have been fired, placed on leave or have resigned.
