Well known actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin have both been indicted along with more than 40 others in a country-wide college admissions scam.
It was an elaborate scheme involving schools like UCLA and even Yale. There was a mastermind, a college President, test proctors, and a lot of customers like the two actresses that allegedly knew what they were doing was illegal.
Details are still coming in, but here’s the gist… Wealthy people were paying into the millions to get their kids admitted to colleges through athletic programs, even if their kids weren’t athletic at all.
Authorities allege Felicity Huffman paid $15,000 for her oldest kid, and Lori Loughlin and her husband paid over $500,000 for their two girls.
The feds also say the scam has been going on for almost a decade – rich people gaming the system with outright fraud.
