Lori Loughlin Surrenders to Police After College Cheating Scandal Indictment

Loughlin has projects slated through November in our neighbor to the North, after which the judge has ordered her to surrender her passport on December 19.

Isabella Giannulli looked anxious and exhausted as she came home after her mother, Lori Loughlin's shocking arrest, and paparazzi were there to capture the moment in upsetting pics.

Loughlin was taken into custody by FBI agents in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning, Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said.

Again, the criminal allegations aren't falling on Giannulli, and she should't be blamed for the fact that she's not in love with college, but it certainly begs the question as to why Loughlin went to such great lengths to allegedly get her daughter into a school that she could care less about.

"The prime movers of this fraud" were the parents and other defendants, Lelling said, though he noted some students may face charges down the road.

The ringleader behind the scam, William "Rick" Singer, who authorities say was paid about $25 million dollars to bribe coaches and university administrators, has pleaded guilty and is cooperating with authorities. Several prestigious universities like Yale, University of Southern California, Stanford, and Georgetown were targeted in the scheme.

"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", the release says.

Others ensnared in the scandal include Gordon Caplan, co-chairman of NY law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher, who allegedly paid $75,000 to have his daughter's test grades fixed.

Other notable parents charged by the Boston U.S. attorney's office include actress Felicity Huffman, who starred in "Desperate Housewives"; and 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.

Since the scandal made news, Lori Loughlin has reportedly deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts (via People).

"CAPTION THIS: 'It's ok honey".

"Give Olivia the benefit of the doubt, we don't know that she had any knowledge of this".

Ben Dreyfuss, the son of veteran actor Richard Dreyfuss, quipped: "I got into college the old fashioned way: by letting my father's celebrity speak for itself". I never over-scheduled my kids.

After news broke on Tuesday that Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were among over 40 people who were indicted in a massive college admissions cheating scam, videos posted to Olivia's YouTube page resurfaced.

"Please do a video for how you prepared for the SATs", read one comment.

The technology company announced that it was pulling a 2017 advertisement featuring the Fuller House star and her social-media star daughter, following Loughlin's role in a college-admissions scandal.
