Lori Loughlin Indicted on New Charge in College Admissions Scandal

Lori Loughlin Indicted on New Charge in College Admissions Scandal

The Desperate Housewives star said she "betrayed" her daughter and is "ashamed" of the pain she has caused.

After pleading guilty on Monday, Felicity released a statement to People admitting to her involvement in the scam but denying her daughter had anything to do with it. Incredibly, one parent will also plead guilty money laundering charges after claiming the fraudulent charity payment as a tax wrote-off.

"Singer accomplished this by paying defendant Mark Riddell to take or correct the exams, and by bribing two exam administrators, defendants Niki Williams and Igor Dvorskiy, to allow this to happen on their watch", Lelling said.

'The charge of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud provides for a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of $250,000 or twice the gross gain or loss, whichever is greater, ' said a release from the US Attorney's Office for the District of MA.

Huffman's husband William H. Macy, who was only listed as her "spouse" in the papers, was not indicted in the scandal.

Macy was not charged and authorities have not made any comment.

Huffman was among 50 people charged in what authorities have described as the biggest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department.

Huffman paid $15,000 to have confessed admissions scammer Rick Singer find someone to take her oldest daughter's Saturday. She says her desire to help her daughter is "no excuse to break the law or engage in honesty". He did this in two ways - by bribing school officials and proctors of the SAT and ACT tests to secure desired scores and by paying off athletic coaches to secure slots on their teams. He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

The parents each agreed to plead guilty to one felony count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest-services mail fraud, according to reports.

"We have worked cooperatively with the prosecutors and will continue to do so as we take full responsibility for our bad judgment", Isackson said in a statement obtained by AP.

Unlike Giannulli and Huffman, who was released on a $250,000 bail bond last month, Loughlin reluctantly was initially granted the ability to travel to Vancouver for work on the multiple Hallmark projects she had signed on for.

It comes after Huffman was among the famous and wealthy parents caught up in the college admissions bribery scandal affecting some of the most prestigious universities in America.

Huffman, 56, of Los Angeles, and 10 other parents agreed to plead guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, according to MA U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling. We will make informed decisions about those cases as the reviews are completed", the college wrote on its website, adding: "USC has placed holds on the accounts of students who may be associated with the alleged admissions scheme.
