More details of Huffman's arrest in college admissions bribery case.
"Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman and former "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin were among the 46 people charged in the $25 million college entrance exam cheating scheme on Tuesday.
According to reports, Huffman allegedly paid William “Rick” Singer to illegally boost her daughter Sofia’s score on the SAT exams by 400 points. Huffman was held on $250,000 bond and had to surrender her passport.
Huffman and her husband, “Shameless” star William H. Macy, allegedly made a charitable donation of $15,000 “to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter.”
The investigation suggests Huffman “later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her youngest daughter, before deciding not to do so."
Lori Loughlin, aka "Aunt Becky," and her husband reportedly agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team, despite the fact that they weren't on any crew teams.
In addition to Huffman and Loughlin, CEOs and college coaches were also indicted on Tuesday for allegedly participating in the scheme "focused on getting students admitted to elite universities as recruited athletes, regardless of their athletic abilities, and helping potential students cheat on their college exams."
