Some Hollywood stars have been implicated in a massive cheating scandal. Full House star Lori Loughlin and Oscar nominee Felicity Huffman are two of the 50 parents charged in a plot to get their children into schools including Georgetown, Stanford, UCLA, University of San Diego, USC, University of Texas, Wake Forest, and Yale. The scheme was uncovered by the FBI and federal prosecutors in Boston, and involved parents paying bribes of up to $6 million to get their children into these elite schools. In many instances, the children were unaware that their parents had paid these bribes according to federal documents. Huffman has two daughters with husband William H. Macy including Sofia, who is 18, and 16-year old Georgia. Loughlin and her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli also have two daughters: Olivia, 19, and Isabella, 20. Macy was not charged but Giannulli was named alongside his wife in the papers. Huffman, Loughlin and Giannulli are all charged with Conspiracy to Commit Mail Fraud. “Beginning in or about 2011, and continuing through the present, the defendants -- principally individuals whose high-school age children were applying to college -- conspired with others to use bribery and other forms of fraud to facilitate their children's admission to colleges and universities in the District of Massachusetts and elsewhere, including Yale University, Stanford University, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California, and the University of Southern California -- Los Angeles,” stated the 200 page document that was filed yesterday.
