Desperate Housewives' Felicity Huffman released on bail after college bribery arrest

Felicity Huffman is among actors and CEOs indicted in a college admissions scam

Some of the parents wrapped up in the scandal allegedly bribed college coaches - working at Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, USC, UCLA, Wake Forest and the University of Texas - to get their children into the school of their choice. She will be booked at the Metropolitan Detention Center and is expected to appear before a federal magistrate at 2:00 p.m. this afternoon at U.S. District Court in downtown Los Angeles. However, until her preliminary hearing, which is scheduled for March 29 in Boston, Huffman is ordered to hand over her passport.

Loughlin is best known for her role as Aunt Becky in "Full House" while Huffman is known for her role on "Desperate Housewives". The 54-year-old actress' travel has been restricted to the United States and Canada, as she is filming Garage Sale Mystery, a film series for Hallmark, in Vancouver.

A who's who of famous names, from actresses to CEOs, have been arrested as part of a national college admissions cheating scam, according to court records unsealed in Boston Tuesday.

John Vandemoor, a former Stanford University sailing coach who worked with Singer, also pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy.

Prosecutors said parents paid an admissions consultant from 2011 until last month to bribe coaches and administrators to label their children as recruited athletes, to alter test scores and to have others take online classes to boost their children's chances of getting into schools.

"Singer worked with parents to fabricate impressive athletic profiles for their kids including fake athletic credentials or honors or fake participation in elite club themes", the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Tuesday. She was released on $2550,000 bail.

Brie Larson on their super-hero role-playing
The Academy Award victor brings out the emotional yet human superhero to life like she's been doing this for years. Many fans have noted that Danvers has still not been referred as by her code name Captain Marvel in the movie.

Court papers said a cooperating witness met with Ms Huffman and Macy at their Los Angeles home and explained to them that he "controlled" a testing centre and could have somebody secretly change her daughter's answers.

In a 2018 video posted on her YouTube page, Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, said she wasn't interested in school.

Part of the scheme involved advising parents to lie to test administrators that their child had learning disabilities that allowed them extra exam time.

It was unclear how many children benefited from the scheme, though investigators said more parents and coaches may yet be charged. Singer was paid $100,000 to $6.5 million by parents to engage in the scam, prosecutors said.

"Wealthy parents paid Singer about 25 million dollars in total", Lelling said. Meanwhile, Huffman was accused of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud for making a $15,000 charitable payment in the scheme.
