Will Lori Loughlin's Daughter Olivia Jade Get Expelled Amid Admissions Scandal?

According to NBC News, the alleged scheme involved parents bribing coaches and administrators in order to secure their children's entrance into elite universities. Felicity Huffman paid $15,000 to get her daughter to be able to cheat on the college entrance exam and Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli paid a total of $500,000 to get their daughters accepted into USC. Loughlin had been in Vancouver but returned to California Wednesday morning, where she was taken into custody.

Prosecutors say they pretended the girls rowed crew to pass them off as athletic recruits when neither was interested in the sport.

Loughlin will also face charges in Boston Federal Court on March 29.

Reactions: "So Aunt Becky from Full House and Lynette Scavo from Desperate Housewives are involved in this college exam scheme and have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud".

The mastermind behind the plot, William "Rick" Singer, has pleaded guilty in the case and is cooperating with authorities. In October, Huffman was recorded by the Federal Bureau of Investigation allegedly discussing participating in the same scheme for her younger daughter; however, she did not ultimately pursue it.

The 18-year-old college student and YouTuber and her older sister Bella may be expelled from the school amid the admissions scandal surrounding their parents.

Authorities who accused dozens of super-wealthy parents of paying bribes to get their kids into elite US colleges say the investigation isn't over.

"(Singer) typically instructed his clients to fabricate a reason - such as a bar mitzvah or a wedding - that their children purportedly needed to take the test in Houston or West Hollywood instead of at their own schools", the indictment said.

Judge Steve Kim set her bail at $1,000,000, the same amount as her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who is also being charged. "I'd be happy to do anything", Isabella said, explaining that her mother had "helped me with so many auditions, which is so nice".

Representatives for Loughlin and Giannulli, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Rudy Meredith, who resigned last fall as the winningest women's soccer coach in Yale University history, was among nine coaches indicted. "For every student admitted through fraud, an honest and genuinely talented student was rejected".
