Other than Huffman and Loughlin, dozens of other people, including the CEOs of companies, were indicted in the case, dubbed "Operation Varsity Blues".

Fifty people, including Macy's wife, actress Felicity Huffman and actress Lori Loughlin, were charged Tuesday in a scheme in which wealthy parents allegedly bribed college coaches and other insiders to get their children into some of the nation's most elite schools.

The scandal has gone viral across the internet, forcing Huffman to disable commenting on her Instagram posts and Loughlin to delete all her social accounts entirely.

"The rest of us struggle while the rich continue to take advantage of us", Wendy said as she began her show. I feel like all of the parents should be charged and go to jail and pay huge fines.

Loughlin's arrest comes after she openly admitted her girls were feeling pressured academically. "Full House", what's going to happen to Fuller House'? During the show's run, Huffman won an Emmy for her role, and was nominated for an Oscar for best actress for her role as a transgender woman in 2005's Transamerica. I wouldn't mind! I mean, this is bad...

He is accused of paying $200,000 to have someone else take his two sons' SATs in order to help get them into elite colleges. "She's simply not the kind of person who is going to become an global fugitive", her attorney Evan A. Jeaness said in court.

Judge Steve Kim set her bail at $1,000,000, the same amount as her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who is also being charged.

Authorities have not said why her husband, actor William H. 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.

The Fuller House actress and her husband allegedly paid $500,000 to have both of their daughters, Bella and Olivia, recruited for the crew team, a sport which they apparently don't play, at USC.

Huffman has now been charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

According to court documents, cited by AP, Huffman paid $15,000 that she disguised as a charitable donation so her daughter could take part in the college entrance-exam cheating scam.

Some include Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, USC, UCLA, Wake Forest, and others, according to the DOJ's news release.

The fraud scheme was run out of a small college preparation company in Newport Beach, California, that relied on bribes to sports coaches, phoney test takers and even doctored photos to land college slots, United States prosecutors said on Tuesday.
