Two famous Hollywood actresses, Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, were charged in a ma court Tuesday along with more than 50 others for their alleged roles in an elaborate scam involving college admissions.

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.

Coaches from Yale, Stanford, Georgetown, USC, Wake Forest and other schools were allegedly involved.

The plot allegedly involved parents paying bribes of up to $6 million, ABC News reported, in order to get their children into elite schools.

According to the Texas Tribune, Coach Center, who is accused of taking a $100,000 bribe in 2015 by helping a student gain admission by adding him to the list of tennis team recruits, has been placed on administrative leave.

Agents allege that Huffman and her husband, William Macy, "made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000.to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter". According to the documents, her daughter never rowed, and Loughlin told a cooperating witness during a phone call, recorded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, that she was going to arrange to have her daughter photographed on a rowing machine.

The daughters of Full House actress Lori Loughlin became targets of scorn on social media on Tuesday (March 12) after their mother was charged in an alleged scheme to help privileged Americans get their children into elite universities by fraudulent means.

Heinel and Huffman were arrested Tuesday morning and were expected to be charged Tuesday afternoon.

Mr Singer also allegedly helped parents stage photographs of their children playing sports or even Photoshopped children's faces onto images of athletes downloaded from the internet to exaggerate their athletic credentials. "Here, [the documents suggest that the FBI] has recordings of phone calls with Ms. Huffman discussing the arrangement, including how the organization planned to hide the $15,000 as a charitable donation".

Her husband, "Shameless" actor William H. Macy, was also at the courthouse in Downtown LA and remained tight-lipped about the charges.

"The parents and other defendants are clearly the prime movers in this fraud".

"For every student admitted through fraud, an honest and genuinely talented student was rejected", Lelling said. She ended up scoring a 1420 - 400 points higher than she had gotten on a PSAT taken a year earlier, according to court documents.
