Lori Loughlin, Full House actor has pleaded guilty in the enormous college admission scandal in the U.S. record
In April 2019, Lelling accused 51 people in the federal court associated with the lengthy and countrywide plot to wrongfully get admission for high school students into the top colleges and institutions. Several parents seemingly paid $200,000 and about $6.5 million to have their children accepted to different colleges and institutes. This case has been termed Operation Varsity Blues, which is apparently the largest college acceptance scandal in U.S. records.
Loughlin and Gianulli are the 23rd and 24th parents, to request for conviction in the college admissions scandal. Felicity Huffman, an associate actress, who co-starred in the show Desperate Housewives, also served her time in lockup as a consequence of her guilty plea to a charge of conspiracy and to send out mail scam and honest services mail scam. Huffman was also commanded to serve one-year probation, pay a $30,000 penalty and execute 250 hours of community service.
Andrew E. Lelling, U.S. Attorney claimed that the accused people plotted to perpetrate federal program bribery by paying off to the workers of the University of Southern California (USC) in order to get an admission there for their children. In return for the so-called bribes, USC workers apparently “designated the defendant’s children as athletic recruits – with little or no regard for their athletic abilities – or as members of other favored admissions categories.”
Andrew E. Lelling, United States Attorney stated “Under the plea agreements filed today, these defendants will serve prison terms reflecting their respective roles in a conspiracy to corrupt the college admissions process and which are consistent with prior sentences in this case,” He even added, “We will continue to pursue accountability for undermining the integrity of college admissions.”
