Actress Lori Loughlin Posts $1 Million Bail in College Bribery Case

Olivia Jade Giannulli, one of Loughlin's daughters, disabled comments on her Instagram posts on Wednesday after some of her 1.3 million followers lashed out against her.

Lori Loughlin appeared in federal court in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon, facing a charge of mail fraud in connection with the widespread college admissions bribery scheme. She didn't speak except say "yes" to the judge's questions, The Associated Press reported.

The couple face charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Magistrate Judge Steve Kim said Loughlin must limit her travel to the continental US and areas around Vancouver, Canada, for work.

Loughlin's husband Mossimo Giannulli is also on the authorities' list after the couple paid a reported $500,000 United States dollars to facilitate their girls admission to USC.

The identity of Australia's openers for the Ashes is also a long way off being decided. Immediately after that the BCCI had also banned both the players from playing IPL.


The Fuller House actress and her husband allegedly paid $500,000 to have both of their daughters, Bella and Olivia, recruited for the crew team, a sport which they apparently don't play, at USC.

"Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman and former "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin were among the 46 people charged in the $25 million college entrance exam cheating scheme on Tuesday.

Loughlin, 54, surrendered to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents early Wednesday after returning from Vancouver, where she was filming.

She is expected to appear in a Boston court on March 29 for a preliminary hearing. The parents are alleged to have paid for fake entrance exams and phony athletic achievements in return for guaranteed university places.

The scam, which is now being referred to as "Operation Varsity Blues" had two parts.

USA attorney Andrew Lelling said: "These parents are a catalogue of wealth and privilege".

Singer ran the scheme through his Edge College & Career Network company in Newport Beach.

The cheating scheme publicly unraveled on Tuesday when prosecutors charged 33 parents, 13 coaches, and associates of Singer's business for their alleged involvement.

Just under 50 people were charged in court on Tuesday.

The fraud scheme was run out of a small college preparation company in Newport Beach, California, that relied on bribes to sports coaches, phoney test takers and even doctored photos to land college slots, USA prosecutors said on Tuesday.

Other prominent parents charged by the Boston U.S. attorney's office include Felicity Huffman, the actress who starred in "Desperate Housewives"; Gordon Caplan, the co-chairman of global law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher; and Bill McGlashan Jr., who heads a buyout investment arm of private equity firm TPG Capital.
