Hallmark Fans Want Lori Loughlin Fired After Bribery Scandal

15 March 2019

Georgetown University was one the schools the schemers allegedly targeted.

Colleges and companies have moved swiftly to distance themselves from employees swept up in a nationwide college admissions scam, in what prosecutors have labelled the largest such scandal in United States history.

Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Laura Eimiller says Loughlin is in custody Wednesday morning in Los Angeles.

Still hanging in the balance is the fate of the privileged scholars, at least some of whom may not have known about their parents' alleged acts.

"These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege", U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said in announcing the $25 million federal bribery case. In addition, the now-indicted celebs also made fake athletic profiles for their kids to make it seem as if they were athletically qualified even though numerous children weren't involved in sports at all.

Parents spent anywhere from $200,000 to $6.5 million to guarantee their children's admission, officials said.

In a statement, American Council on Education President Ted Mitchell said, "If these allegations are true, they violate the essential premise of a fair and transparent college admissions process".

The Dolphins saved $6 million in salary-cap space by releasing Amendola, who signed a two-year deal last March for $12 million. Amendola's best season actually came with the Rams back in 2010, when he caught 85 passes for 689 yards and 3 TDs.

Federal authorities identified William Rick Singer, 58, of Newport Beach, as the leader of the scheme.

There were dual avenues for carrying out the scheme, Lelling explained.

For example, Singer and his co-conspirators used photo-editing technology to superimpose the face of a patron's student onto stock photos of athletes, prosecutors said.

The alleged scam, for which 44 people have been charged, saw wealthy parents pay to get their children into top universities as recruited athletes, regardless of their ability.

"Huffman later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so".

Calls with Huffman and a co-operating witness were recorded.

Just hours after she was taken into custody, Loughlin made her first appearance in federal court in Los Angeles where a judge set her bond at $1 million, according to the Associated Press, the Orange County Register and the San Gabriel Valley Tribune. News show that both Huffman and Loughlin have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

As for Loughlin, she and her husband allegedly agreed to bribes totalling an eye-popping $500,000 to have their two daughters pretend they were recruits to the USC crew team.

She is scheduled to appear in court there in the afternoon.

Loughlin's attorneys requested similar conditions for the actress even though she was not present in court. Messages seeking comment from Huffman's representatives were not immediately returned.

Rudy Meredith, who resigned last fall as the winningest women's soccer coach in Yale University history, was among nine coaches indicted.

The fallout was swift Tuesday as several college coaches and one administrator were either fired or placed on administrative leave. The school said they "will make informed, appropriate decisions once those reviews have been completed".

How prosecutors say the admissions bribery scheme worked
College coaches and others have been charged in a sweeping admissions bribery case unsealed in federal court. Then, Singer paid Mark Riddell, another defendant, to bribe the two exam administrators, prosecutors said.
