  • Meghan Mc Cain Rips Lori Loughlin's Husband Amid College Admissions Scam Scandal

Radar Online reports that the Full House star was indicted on charges of "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud" on March 11, and a warrant for her arrested was released.

According to reports, she relied on falsified documentation to get the her daughters accepted to USC's crew team, even though they don't play the sport, CNN reported. Prominent actresses, CEOs and others are alleged to have paid sizable bribes to college coaches to get their kids into prominent schools.

Several celebrities and colleges have been named in an admissions cheating scandal.

Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were among 50 people charged by US federal prosecutors on Tuesday in a $25 million scheme to help wealthy Americans cheat their children's way into elite universities, such as Yale and Stanford.

John Vandemoor, a former Stanford University sailing coach, is also scheduled to plead guilty to racketeering conspiracy charges. The scandal is that these parents paid substantial bribes to admissions officers and varsity coaches to get their children admitted to schools under the pretense these children were athletic recruits.

'Captain Marvel' rockets to historic $153M debut
That puts Captain Marvel in the company of movies like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Star Wars . Brie Larson- the real Captain Marvel actually dropped by the movie premiere, and surprised fans herself.

The government claims Huffman "made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000" in order to participate in the scam on behalf of her college-age daughter.

Prosecutors allege that other fake athletic profiles were also made to make students look like strong high school athletes when they actually weren't. Hoda Kotb asked Loughlin as she sat beside her daughter Isabella whose grades were at or just below the "low end" of USC's admission standards, court documents revealed Tuesday. In exchange, Huffman, a "Desperate Housewives" cast member, was directed to bring her daughter to the West Hollywood testing center where someone corrected her answers or gave her assistance during the test, the documents say.

At least 40 people have been charged in relation to a United States college cheating scam, according to court records that have been unsealed. In both Loughlin and Huffman's cases, authorities told ABC that they have written and audio proof of the actresses' participation in the scheme.

Loughlin, who did not appear in court on Tuesday, reportedly has been filming a movie in Vancouver.
