Watch: Here’s The Latest In The Massive Scandal
News breaking that authorities just busted a nationwide college entrance exam scandal and it has netted several famous people.
Among the people indicted include “Desperate Wives” actress Felicity Huffman and “Fuller House” star Lori Loughlin.
Several NCAA D-1 college coaches have also been indicted as part of the scandal.
From Hollywood Reporter:
Documents show those indicted allegedly paid millions in bribes to get their children into elite colleges. Those colleges include Yale, Stanford and the University of Southern California.
Loughlin and husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 to USC in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the college’s crew team — even though they did not participate in crew — thereby guaranteeing their admission in the college, according to documents.
Huffman and her spouse, William H. Macy, are accused of disguising a $15,000 charitable payment in the bribery scheme.
According to charging documents, a confidential witness met with Huffman at her home and explained that he “controlled” a SAT testing center and could arrange for someone to proctor the taking of the test and then correct her daughter’s answers afterward. Huffman is said to have later exchanged emails with this individual in an effort to get 100 percent extra time for her daughter and to facilitate the taking of the SATs away from her school.
People are, needless to say, pretty stunned by the news.
