Lori Loughlin Taken Into Custody After College-Admissions Scam Indictment

March 13, 2019

The Associated Press reports that Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin was taken into custody in Los Angeles on Wednesday morning for her involvement in a massive college-admissions scam in which wealthy parents bribed their kids' way into top colleges. In the case of Loughlin and her husband, the fashion designer Massimo Giannulli, they paid $500,000 to have their two daughters "recruited" onto the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither of them was a rower. Loughlin was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday afternoon. Actress Felicity Huffman was also taken into custody Tuesday for paying to have her oldest daughter's SAT score doctored in connection with the same "Operation Varsity Blues" scheme.
