Loughlin is now filming a TV movie in B.C. for Hallmark Channel, where she has been a mainstay since 2013.

Sidoo, 59, was a 2016 recipient of the Order of B.C.

Prosecutors allege Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 to have their two daughters labeled as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither is a rower. Giannulli posted bond, also $1 million, and was released on the same day.

Henriquez will still hold a seat on the board and serve as an adviser, Hercules said.

Colleges and companies have moved swiftly to distance themselves from employees swept up in a nationwide college admissions scam, in what prosecutors have labelled the largest such scandal in United States history.

Riddell didn't return several phone calls seeking comment.

William "Rick" Singer, 58, (above leaving court) pleaded guilty Tuesday to being the mastermind behind the million dollar college admissions bribery scheme. At the test taking center, it's said a proctor corrected her answers afterward.

Other notable parents charged by the Boston US attorney's office include Bill McGlashan Jr, who headed a buyout investment arm of private equity firm TPG Capital, which put him on indefinite leave after he was charged. Dozens, including Huffman, the Emmy-winning star of ABC's "Desperate Housewives", were arrested by midday Tuesday.

The actress will now be allowed to spend the rest of the year filming a number of projects in Vancouver before surrendering her passport in December once all her contracted work in Hollywood North is completed, according to a report from TMZ. Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, 69, have two daughters together, Sofia, 18, and Georgia, 16. Macy paid $250,000 to have her released.

She's alleged to be involved in the scandal alongisde 46 others, including Full House star Lori Loughlin. Macy was not charged; authorities did not say why. In addition to her starring role in When Calls the Heart, Loughlin also headlines the Garage Sale Mysteries franchise on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.

Singer pleaded guilty on Tuesday to racketeering charges.

"Mostly my parents really wanted me to go, because both of them didn't go to college", she said.

"Very proud of my honest, hardworking sons", actor Rob Lowe tweeted, alongside a throwback photo that his 24-year-old son, John, shared upon graduating from Stanford University, while Lena Dunham added: "All the people involved in this college scam should have gathered their money and started a small elite college where Lori Loughlin teaches a class on smiling..."

"Every student deserves to be considered on their individual merits when applying to college, and it's disgraceful to see anyone breaking the law to give their children an advantage over others", US Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said in a statement Wednesday.

Well, he has not been indicted yet, but charges could be on the way as he allegedly also made the donation to the fake charity.
