Actresses, CEO's among those arrested in college admissions scam

Dozens of people, including actors Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, indicted in college admissions scam

The Associated Press reports racketeering conspiracy charges were brought against coaches at schools including Wake Forest University, Georgetown and the University of Southern California. Loughlin is accused of reportedly paying $500,000 to USC to have her two daughters recruited for the college's crew team, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Court documents said Huffman paid $15,000 that she disguised as a charitable donation so that her daughter could take part in the college entrance cheating scam.

After being arrested early Tuesday morning, a distraught Felicity Huffman appeared in court and did not enter a plea.

She was found unresponsive, and a report from authorities in Texas say indications are it was suicide as she was found hanged. According to TMZ , she died by an apparent suicide , though a final cause of death is yet to be confirmed by a coroner.

The U.S. Attorney's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation alleged in the indictment that the alleged scheme helped students gain acceptance to top schools by helping them cheat on college exams. Since 2011, Singer has allegedly also been bribing coaches and university administrators to falsely designate applicants as potential athlete recruits or assign them other preferential designations that improve their chances of acceptance.

Several celebrities and colleges have been named in an admissions cheating scandal.

On a call with a wealthy parent, prosecutors said, Singer summed up his business thusly: "What we do is help the wealthiest families in the USA get their kids into school.my families want a guarantee".

In the video, the 19-year-old said, "I don't know how much of school I'm going to attend, but will talk to my deans and everyone", in reference to her busy business schedule that requires her to travel a lot. Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was also indicted. Singer then arranged a third-party to proctor the exam and secretly correct the girl's answers.

In some cases, college entrance exam administrators were paid off to allow a Florida man take the tests for the children of Singer's clients. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, sat in court as the magistrate ordered her free on $365,000 bail. Huffman and Loughlin were not immediately available for comment.

One of the cooperating witnesses in the scheme was Rudy Meredith, the head coach of the women's soccer team at Yale.
