Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman among dozens charged in college bribery scheme

Federal authorities say the parents knowingly paid bribes ranging from thousands of dollars to $6 million dollars to Singer, who would then forward it to the appropriate person to help with admission.

The coaches worked at such schools as Stanford, UCLA, Georgetown, Wake Forest, Southern Cal and University of California, Los Angeles.

Hollywood, college athletics and the academic world collided Tuesday when federal prosecutors charged almost 50 people in a scheme where college coaches and administrators were bribed by parents to help kids get into elite schools around the country.

College coaches and others have been charged in a sweeping admissions bribery case unsealed in federal court.

One of the schemes involved parents paying William Singer, the founder of a college prep business, $15,000 to $75,000 to have someone take the SAT or ACT for their children. Representatives for Huffman haven't returned a message seeking comment. 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.

Prosecutors allege that fake athletic profiles were also made to make students look like strong high school athletes when they actually weren't.

At least 14 people were charged with conspiracy to commit racketeering, two were charged with money laundering conspiracy, and one was charged with conspiracy to defraud United States.
