Let's Go There: College Entrance Exam Cheating Scheme

Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman in the mix of scandal

March 12, 2019


Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among at least 50 people charged in a large-scale college entrance exam cheating scheme. According to the charging papers, Huffman "made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 ... to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter." The documents also say that actress Lori Loughlin --known for her role as Aunt Becky on the ABC sitcom "Full House" -- and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, "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 did not participate in crew -- thereby facilitating their admission to USC." Huffman and Giannulli were arrested at their homes. A judge said on Tuesday that Huffman can be released on a $250,000 bond, while Giannulli will be released on a $1 million dollar bond, securing the couple's home as bond.
