Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin Are Among Dozens Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scandal For Their Kids

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

On Tuesday, two women very familiar to soap audiences, actresses Felicity Huffman (Ex-Lynette, Desperate Housewives) and Lori Loughlin (Ex-Jodie, Edge of Night) are among dozens of wealthy parents, elite college coaches and college prep executives accused of carrying out a nationwide fraud to get students into prestigious colleges, according to a massive federal indictment that has been handed down.

According to prosecutors, the scheme was in two parts: either parents allegedly paid a college prep organization to take the test on behalf of students or to correct their answers.  Then, the organization allegedly bribed college coaches to help admit the students into college as recruited athletes, regardless of their actual abilities.  The documents also allege that some defendants created fake athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes.

CNN is reporting: “As of now, 50 people were charged in the criminal investigation that went by the name ‘Operation Varsity Blues.”‘ Those arrested include two SAT/ACT administrators, one exam proctor, nine coaches at elite schools, one college administrator and 33 parents, according to Andrew Lelling, the US attorney for Massachusetts.

The parents were alleged to be from a “catalog of wealth and privilege,” including actors, CEOs, a fashion designer and the co-chairman of a global law firm.  “This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud. There can be no separate college admission system for the wealthy,” stated Lelling.

As to Huffman and Loughlin’s parts in the scandal: Felicity has been charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.  She was arrested without incident at her home.   Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to William Rick Singer’s fake charity the Key Worldwide Foundation to facilitate cheating for her daughter on the SATs, the complaint says.   Another cooperating witness told authorities he purportedly traveled from Tampa to a West Hollywood Test Center to administer Huffman’s daughter’s exam.  She received a 1420 on her test, which was 400 points higher than a PSAT taken a year earlier without the same administrator, the complaint states.

Loughlin, best known to TV audiences as Becky on Full House, and now its reboot, Fuller House. is facing the same felony charge: conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.  Her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, was also charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

According to documents, the duo allegedly agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team, even though they did not participate in crew, the complaint said.   The complaint includes emails between Singer and Giannulli in which the two discussed a “game plan” for his older daughter, whose academic qualifications were at or below the “low-end” of USC’s admission standards.  Singer facilitated bribes to Donna Heinel, the senior associate athletic director at USC, who then got the students in to USC as recruited athletes, according to the complaint.

Giannulli was arrested without incident, and the FBI served a warrant for Loughlin, but she was not home at the time. She is on a flight to Los Angeles where she is expected to surrender at the Central District Court later this afternoon.

So, what do you think about this shocker involving Huffman and Loughlin, and the corruption via the those of privilege, wealth, and status? Share your thoughts on this developing story via the comment section below.

Absolutely, 4ever…..I was taught discipline from an early age, as many children are. And, I was lucky to have had teachers where discipline walks alongside learning.
It is not money which turns people’s heads….it is the undisciplined mind. Money should never come before honor—-there are plenty of people with money in this world, who do not fall prey to corruption.
Spoiled kids are the product of such minds. College is a privilege; yet, what goes on within some of those hallowed walls of “Cognitionis” has gone to pot!!

I think that the kids that really didn’t know what their parents did, will be the ones to suffer the most from society and their peers. Yes, every parent wants their child to have an education, but not this way. Hope these kids learned this lesson well, but at what cost to them?

I must disagree on that assertion, Aria. It would appear that the only color that mattered here was “green.” (As in money….)

Why on earth would you bring “left vs right” politics into this? It has nothing to do with political beliefs. Though if you wanted to try to make it about that, you’d have to note that the actress are just two of 30+ parents charged — most of whom are corporate millionaire types, who in general would be assumed to lean right in their politics. But again, that honestly has no bearing on this situation. Not everything is liberal vs. conservative. Sometimes it’s just nonpolitical fraud.

Disgusting. Some of us got into college the old fashioned way–by earning it. The other thing is, if they got their kids into schools by bribery, then the kids weren’t equipped to succeed in that school. Was more bribery going to be done to get them a college diploma? Let them go to a school their earned on their own merit where they can be successful. It’s all about status and how it looks for the parents. I read that the guidance counselor of Lori’s daughter wondered how she got into USC. Shameful all the way around. And now if… Read more »

I agree with you but there’s another issue here. There is nothing wrong with state colleges. Moreover, there is nothing wrong with attending a good community college which will afford you access to the college of your dreams. What we must do as Americans is stop acting like the only colleges and universities acceptable for our kids inhabits the Ivy League terrain. There is another lesson to be learned here which has nothing to do with with blackmail, cheating and fraud–it has something to do with the pressure parents put on their kids to get into the colleges and universities… Read more »

Perhaps Ms Loughlin picked up some “criminal instincts” from her time on the Edge Of Night. Even though it was well over 30 years ago! By the way, if the networks can revive prime time series of the past, don’t you think it’s time to bring back classic daytime soaps? EON would be the perfect show to start with.

Charles is swoon worthy, indeed! It’s a real pity that so few of the old “Edge” episodes are available online…I once looked for them in order to relive some of that old Preacher magic and there was very little to be found.

Again, as in the Smollett case, this is fraud. A crime……A felony. But, what offends and angers me, second to these felonious acts, is the fact that these parents took away the right from a student who deserved their child’s seat in the classroom/lecture hall. These “daughters” were adults when they stepped onto the threshold of what should be considered as a noble, educational institution to those who deserve it!! ……to those who have worked their butts off ……to those who poured hour after hour by burning the midnight oil to get optimal grades on their exams; their entry exam,… Read more »

@CeeCee…Even though it has been a few decades since I graduated from college, the signs that higher education would have reached this deplorable state became apparent to me way back when. Whilst I attended university the old-fashioned way, that is, by being accepted to my school of choice due to the right grades, extra curriculars, test scores and at full parental expense, it was a real shock to me that even at exclusive private institutions, this was not necessarily the rule. Although academic and sports scholarships were a perfectly valid means of obtaining student access and financing for a number… Read more »

For the love of all that’s unholy, don’t try to attach a “political” agenda to this.

Or were you actually not aware that Donald Trump, George Bush Jr, & Jared Kushner (among many others) got into “prestigious” college due to strings pulled by their daddies? You think those three idiots got in by their GPA or SAT scores? Do you think the Orange Imbecile could even spell SAT??

I’m not surprised, really. I saw some clips of a new Punk Rock documentary where Johnny is in some absurd shouting matches with Marky Ramone & Henry Rollins. He actually appears to have lost his mind, and doesn’t look too physically healthy either.

I just hope the reaction to bribe tuition spreads across the board, considering two of the last three Presidents got into college that way. And neither one of them seems all that smart.

How embarrassing this must be for the kids (if they weren’t aware of it happening). Jupiter Christmas! If people would spend more time with their kids going over their homework, etc, maybe they wouldn’t need to be bribing people to get their kids into colleges.

Also, I don’t think it a shame if someone doesn’t go to college or doesn’t “make the cut” for admissions. Many talented and bright people don’t go to college.

This should serve as a cautionary tale.

May I just add; or amend that, when I speak of teachers, I refer to those few educators who care about instilling knowledge into the student; not the far left, radical idealism that exists only in la-la-land.
The system’s balance is on a slippery slope—-it is slowly dying….when the fulcrum of Academia is losing its valor; the fiber and basis in which its foundation ( from The Legcy of Roman Education) was borne; the meaning of getting an education becomes trivial.

Shay

Amen, CeeCee! Until the vast majority of educators return to their originally-intended purpose of imparting actual knowledge to students—as opposed to their current mission of indoctrinating young minds with their radical-leftist propaganda—then we, as a country, are doomed!!!

It won’t happen, Shay……not unless the parents speak out. This country is set to fail if rebels such as AOC, Omar and Tlaib get their radical way…..even Sanders has gone loopey with this socialist movement.
Hell truly is ruling the planet earth when conservative students are not allowed to speak or wear garb of their own choosing without being physically and verbally attacked.
By the same token; Obama and Hillary t-shirts are worn freely like a badge of honor and pride. Allegedly worked in concert…….

At least in the public school systems, most parents are afraid to speak out for fear of the recriminations NEA-backed teachers are known to perpetrate on their children, perhaps ruining their prospects for future academic success. Unless there are fair-minded superintendents and school board members who defend the right of political freedom for one and all, then neither students nor parents stand a chance. (And that’s certainly not happening in many districts across the country….)

Hard to respond to this, however easy to say what happened was wrong. It was wrong. How systemic the issue — that is not clear. Perhaps it will move the discussion on education to a different level. It has always been a point of pride to say one’s child, or parent, went to a prestigious university. However, it now has become rather exceptional to say one can afford a university at all without carrying years and years of debt.

Very, very smart move Netflix!!!!! Oh…and Lori Loughlin is A TOTAL IDIOT for even paying that $500,000 (bribery and all) to get her airheaded daughter into college.
