Felicity Huffman Released from Custody on $250K Bond Amid College Admissions Scam

Loughlin will also face charges in Boston Federal Court on March 29. Giannulli posted bond and was released Tuesday. The Palo Alto, California, hedge fund Hercules Capital announced Wednesday it was replacing its leader, Manuel Henriquez, who was arrested in New York City on Tuesday and released on $500,000 bail.

The former Desperate Housewives star was in court in Los Angeles on Tuesday following her arrest.

According to court documents, cited by AP, Huffman paid $15,000 that she disguised as a charitable donation so her daughter could take part in the college entrance-exam cheating scam.

The two are among 50 people charged for taking part in the largest such scam in USA history, which the scheme's mastermind said in court documents steered some 800 students into elite universities including Yale, Georgetown and Stanford by cheating the admissions process.

The ringleader of the scheme was named as William Singer, owner of Key Worldwide Foundation and a company called Edge College & Career Network.

There was also a brief discussion about whether Loughlin would be allowed to discuss her case with anyone.

In the meantime, many other celebs have taken to social media to either criticise and condemn the parents or roast them over the scandal.

It's noted in the Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit, "The Guannullis agreed to a 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".

Singer pleaded guilty and his lawyer, Donald Heller, said that his client intends to cooperate fully with prosecutors and is "remorseful and contrite, and wants to move on with his life".

"These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege", U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference in Boston, where the indictments in the scandal were handed up.

"Full House", what's going to happen to Fuller House'? She has lately become the queen of the Hallmark Channel with her holiday movies and the series "When Calls the Heart".

The coaches worked at schools such as Yale University, Stanford University, Georgetown University, Wake Forest University, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California and the University of California, Los Angeles.

Three other cooperating witnesses, including a former head coach of women's soccer at Yale, have agreed to plead guilty, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors said it was up to the universities to decide what to do with students admitted through cheating.
