Hallmark Star Lori Loughlin Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scheme

Hallmark Star Lori Loughlin Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scheme

Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli, 19, received a crushing blow on March 14 when cosmetics giant Sephora ended their partnership with her amid the college admissions scandal.

Singer also arranged for parents to bribe university coaches to attest to a child being athletically gifted. He has pleaded guilty.

She often touts brands in paid ads on her accounts, and since last fall has incorporated her student life at USC.

Lori Loughlin has reportedly been charged in a college admissions scheme.

She's also (for now) a freshman at the University of Southern California.

"Mostly, my parents really wanted me to go because both of them didn't go to college", she said. TMZ reports Federal Bureau of Investigation agents arrested her husband in the college bribery scam.

HuffPost has reached out to a representative for Giannulli and will update this post accordingly.

Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli allegedly paid to have their two daughters labeled as USC crew team recruits, even though neither of them are rowers.

A former top investment manager has appeared in court on charges of paying bribes to get three of his children into top universities as part of a widespread admissions bribery scandal.

She appeared Tuesday in a federal court in Los Angeles and a judge set bond for her at $250,000.

A lawyer for the 61-year-old Laguna Beach, California, man said Hodge isn't a flight risk and he returned to the US when he learned of the charges. Parents made their payments to a sham charity that Singer ran, prosecutors said, which also allowed them to make a fraudulent tax write-off.

According to The Daily Mail, the review by the college could result in their expulsion.

"It wouldn't come as a complete surprise if the brands now working with Ms. Giannulli took a closer look at the status of their relationship with her and possibly reconsidered next steps for engagement", said Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CEO of social-media marketing firm Socialbakers. Over 40 parents to college-bound students have been charged of the alleged scheme. Participating exam proctors, college administrators and athletic coaches from several colleges - including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California - were indicted as well. "I'm just gonna be successful at YouTube and not have to worry about school", she said in the video.

Prosecutors have said colleges are not targets of their criminal case.

In the midst of the ivy league bribing scandal, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman aren't the ones getting most of the heat. However, as reported by USA Today, court papers state that her father sent an "action photo" of her on a rowing machine to supplement claims that she was a crew coxswain.

They were among 50 people charged in the scheme. It's a serious matter, but it's still undeniably amusing that the woman who played "Aunt Becky" on one of the most popular sitcoms of the '90s is implicated.

Huffman was apparently expecting an arrest and would have surrendered herself to authorities. Olivia's mother has not been arrested yet, but she's been charged. She was released later on a $1 million bond but is permitted to travel to Canada to film a movie.
