Hypocrisy, privilege and bribes: Celebrities caught in college admissions fraud scandal

Share

While it has been made apparent that a majority of the students involved were unaware their parents had gone to such extremes in order to guarantee their admission into these Ivy League universities, the internet is particularly angered by Loughlin's 19-year-old daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli's lack of interest in her studies.

Huffman, 56, was released Tuesday posting a $250,000 bond. "There are several connections to the Boston area". These included college coaches allegedly paid by bribes, standardized college testing administrators paid, or parents who allegedly paid bribes for their children.

The most sweeping college admissions fraud scheme ever unearthed in the United States was masterminded at a small college-preparation company based in Newport Beach, California, prosecutors said.

Boston U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling held a press conference Tuesday on the incident.

The parents were then advised to choose one of two test centers that Singer's company said it had control over: one in Houston, Texas, and the other in West Hollywood, California.

The racketeering conspiracy charges unveiled Tuesday were also brought against athletic coaches at schools including Wake Forest University, Georgetown University and the University of Southern California.

The admitted students who came by it honestly also suffered: they were cheated out the opportunity to have another great classmate, roommate, and teammate, and instead had a cheater taking that person's place.

"Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states and charged in documents unsealed on March 12, 2019, in federal court in Boston", a press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office in ma announced about the indictments. In October 2018, Huffman was recorded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation discussing participating in the same scheme for her younger daughter; however, she did not ultimately pursue it. Stanford fired the sailing coach, and USC dropped of its water polo coach and an athletic administrator.

"What is going to happen when they see his application, he'll be flagged as an athlete", Singer told him in a phone conversation recorded by investigators.

In this case, however, Singer arranged for someone to take the test for the students, or paid insiders to fix their scores.

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.

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.

Indeed, Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Giannulli, made headlines previous year when she bragged on YouTube that she was going to college to party and likely would not have much time for classes.
