Twitter Roasts Full House’s Aunt Becky For Involvement in College Admissions Scandal

That's at least one of the lessons of the massive, nationwide college admissions scandal that has implicated a number of famous and wealthy Americans, most notably: Hollywood actors Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.

According to USA Today, "Full House" fans shared surprised and scared reactions to the news since Loughlin played Aunt Becky in the '90s sitcom.

Prosecutors also said parents paid an admissions consultant upwards of $25 million from 2011 through February 2019 to bribe coaches/administrators to label their kids as recruited athletes to increase their chances of getting into the schools mentioned (above).

The documents allege that some of the defendants actually "created fake athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes".

The test administrators in the those centres allegedly took bribes of tens of thousands of dollars to allow Mr Singer's clients to cheat, often by arranging to have wrong answers corrected or having another person take the exam.

Coaches from Georgetown University, University of Southern California, University of California at Los Angeles and Wake Forest University are all indicted. Meredith, authorities say, accepted bribes to bring Yale applicants onto the team "regardless of their athletic ability".

Felicity Huffman was reportedly arrested at her home on Tuesday morning by several armed Federal Bureau of Investigation agents.

Parents paid Singer between $15,000 and $75,000 per test for someone else to take the SAT or ACT exams in place of their college-aged sons or daughters, according to the court papers.

Singer entered a guilty plea in Boston federal court Tuesday to charges that included racketeering conspiracy and obstruction of justice.

Giannulli and Loughlin were recorded on calls with a cooperating witness stating that if they were ever caught they would say they made a donation to the foundation, the indictment stated. Huffman allegedly discussed a similar scheme for her younger daughter but ultimately decided against it.

The alleged masterminds of the scam and parents who paid into it could all face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Loughlin and Huffman were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud. "Thereafter, the Giannullis agreed.to use bribes to facilitate her admission to USC as a recruited crew coxswain, even though she did not row competitively or otherwise participate in crew", prosecutors wrote in the indictment.

Authorities said in many cases the students were not aware of the fraud.
