Hollywood 2019: College Admissions Bribery Scam–Lori Loughlin in Custody

Lori Loughlin has turned herself into the FBI in advance of a court hearing Wednesday. The “Full House” star is one of nearly 50 people involved in a college admissions bribery scam.

“Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman (arrested yesterday) and TPG Growth founder Bill McGlashan are also facing federal charges as part of the probe.

Loughlin was taken into custody a short while ago by FBI agents, according to a spokesperson for the agency. 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.

Prosecutors are accusing wealthy parents such as Loughlin of paying between $200,000 and $6.5 million to get their children into elite universities. These scams include everything from faking SAT and ACT scores to paying college couches to have their kids designated as athletic recruits.
