Others allegedly bribed university athletic coaches and administrators to designate applicants as "purported athletic recruits - regardless of their athletic abilities, and in some cases, even though they did not play the sport they were purportedly recruited to play - thereby facilitating their admission to universities in place of more qualified applicants", the complaint charges.

Both actresses were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud. According to the AP, prosecutors allege fake athletic profiles were made and administrators were bribed to allow a Florida man to take admissions tests on behalf of students.

Authorities say Singer schemed with parents, coaches and others to pay students' way into schools like Yale, Georgetown and Stanford University.

The indictment accuses defendants of committing crimes between 2011 and 2019.

Dozens of people, including coaches at top universities around the country and a pair of Hollywood actresses, have been charged in a college admissions bribery takedown, federal authorities announced late Tuesday morning, March 12. Representatives for Loughlin had no comment. Loughlin and Huffman are among a group of CEOs, actors, college administrators, and Division 1 coaches who have been arrested for their alleged role in a national admissions cheating scandal.

Huffman, known for playing Lynette Scavo on Desperate Housewives, is accused of paying $15,000, which she claimed as a charitable donation, to have her daughter's SAT answers changed, the Post reports.

A former Yale University women's soccer coach, Rudolph "Rudy" Meredith of Madison, Conn.is charged in the case with two counts of wire fraud.

The indicted also included "nine coaches at elite schools" who "pretend (ed) that certain applicants were recruited, competitive athletes, when in fact, the applicants were not", Lelling said. Heinel was also charged Tuesday with conspiracy to commit racketeering.

Loughlin portrayed Rebecca Donaldson in the iconic ABC sitcom Full House, and later reprised the character for Netflix's sequel series, Fuller House.

Singer was paid roughly $25 million by parents to help their children get in to schools, the U.S. attorney said.

Prosecutors are saying the scheme was orchestrated by William Rick Singer, who is the founder of a for-profit college preparation business based in California and disguised as a charity.

Singer, of Newport Beach, Calif., pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Boston to charges including racketeering conspiracy and obstruction of justice.
