Bribes and traps of Hollywood stars for their children to enter prestigious universities. In the United States was exposed on Tuesday a huge plot of traps for the entrance exam to prestigious university at the national level, which involves 48 people, among them Full House actress  Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman of Desperate Housewives.

 

Academy Award nominee Felicity Huffman has been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services or functions, according to court documents filed in federal court in Massachusetts. This is a serious crime. A police source confirmed to CNN that Huffman was arrested in Los Angeles.

Loughlin also faces the same charge of felony: conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services or fraud.

 

According to the documents, the defendants allegedly paid millions in bribes for their children to enter elite universities such as Yale, Stanford, UCLA, Georgetown, the University of San Diego, Wake Forest University, and the University of Texas.

Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying USD 500,000 to the USC in exchange for their two daughters being appointed as recruits for the university team.

 

As for Huffman, she and her husband, the well-known actor William H. Macy, allegedly made a contribution of USD 15,000 for her son to pass the entrance exam. The indictment says the girl was given twice the time to take the SAT ( admission test used by most US universities),  that other students and the paid supervisor agreed to secretly correct their answers later.

 

According to an investigation carried out by the FBI in Boston, the scheme consisted in facilitating the deception in the exams for the students and bribing the administrators and coaches of the university to recruit students as athletes.

 

For college entrance exams, deception was facilitated “in some cases by posing as real students, and in others by providing answers to students during exams or correcting their answers after completing exams, ” according to the criminal complaint.

 

“In many cases, the students who took the exams did not know that their parents had fixed this trap,” the FBI said.

 

The coaches and athletic administrators of the university were also allegedly bribed “to designate the candidates as presumed athletic recruits, regardless of their athletic abilities, and in some cases, even though they did not play the sport they were supposedly recruited.”

 

Those involved have been charged with conspiracy to mail fraud and honest services fraud.
