Hollywood actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among at least 40 people who have been indicted by the FBI and US attorney’s office in Boston over an alleged college admissions scandal, according to NBC News.
The dozens of people indicted include parents accused of having their children recruited to elite universities as Division 1 athletes regardless of athletic abilities, and university coaches who allegedly aided those parents in the deception.
Schools named in unsealed court documents include Georgetown, Stanford, University of California, Los Angeles, Yale, University of Texas, University of Southern California and Wake Forest, according to NBC.
Among those indicted is Yale University women’s soccer coach Rudolph “Rudy” Meredith, who is charged with two counts of wire fraud.
Meredith is accused of conspiring with William Rick Singer, the owner of Edge College & Career Network, to take bribes from parents in hopes of getting students in to colleges.
