The actors were named among a group of 33 parents who allegedly paid millions to bribe coaches at elite universities to reportedly recruit their children and gain admission.

'This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth, combined with fraud, ' US Attorney Lelling said at a press conference after the affidavit was filed. The list also includes some Olympic sports coaches at the universities listed, and ABC reports that most of the students who benefited from this alleged scheme weren't aware of their parents' tactics.

"And let me say: I'm incredibly grateful that I had the privilege and opportunity to have a tutor and to afford practice test programs", John continued.

Singer is also accused of arranging for students to cheat on the SAT and ACT.

In a 2018 video posted on her YouTube page, Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade, said she wasn't interested in school.

Apparently, the Desperate Housewives alum knew that the arrest was looming and would have surrendered on her own if the events of this morning hadn't gone down. Singer, who is now cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, "advised Huffman and her spouse that he "controlled" a testing center, and could arrange for a third party to purport to proctor their daughter's sat and secretly correct her answers afterwards", according to authorities. Sophia allegedly took the test with a proctor who administered the exam and then corrected her wrong answers. "I do not see the difference between getting a kid into school by bribing the Building Committee, and by bribing someone else".

Authorities have not said why Macy, who has starred for the last several years in the Showtime series "Shameless" and was an Oscar nominee for the 1996 movie "Fargo", has not been charged.

Singer pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice.

Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, the founder of clothing brand Mossimo, "agreed to 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", according to prosecutors. The former Desperate Housewives star looked extremely exhausted as she walked by a number of paparazzi waiting to take her picture. She became a star on "Full House", a standout hit of ABC's family-friendly TGIF lineup in the early 1990s, and appeared on the recent Netflix reboot "Fuller House".
