Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, agreed to pay bribes of $500,000 in a scheme that involved cheating on college entrance exams to help their daughters, Isabella and Olivia Giannulli, get into the University of Southern California, according to court documents.

The coaches worked at such schools as Stanford, Georgetown, Wake Forest, the University of Southern California and University of California, Los Angeles.

In Louglin's case, the actress and her husband allegedly paid Singer $500,000 to bribe USC officials into admitting their daughters as crew recruits even though neither participated in crew. Prosecutors in the USA attorney's office in Boston say his company, Edge College & Career Network, amassed $25 million through the fraud.

Authorities said coaches in such sports as soccer, tennis and volleyball accepted bribes to put students on lists of recruited athletes, regardless of their ability or experience.

Lonzo Ball possibly shut down for rest of season
Ingram has appeared in 35 games (13 starts) for Los Angles' G-Leauge affiliate, the South Bay Lakers, this year. Lakers coach Luke Walton said earlier this week that Ingram had pain whenever he attempted to lift his arm.

In all, 44 people, some of them college coaches, have been charged thus far.

The mastermind of the scheme, William "Rick" Singer, on Tuesday pleaded guilty to racketeering charges. "Huffman later made arrangements to pursue the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so".

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. 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.

Loughlin will also face charges in Boston Federal Court on March 29, according to Variety. Huffman's husband, William H. Macy, was not charged or named in the documents, though transcripts of incriminating phone calls allegedly involve both Huffman and her "spouse".

Trump expected to seek $8.6B for border wall in new budget
After a showdown with Trump, Congress only allocated $1.3 billion of the $5.7 billion Trump requested for the wall's construction. Presidential budget proposals are never more than just wish lists, a sort-of State of the Union speech in spreadsheet form.

International Business Times' request for comments from Loughlin and Huffman have not been returned.

Rudy Meredith, who resigned last fall as the winningest women's soccer coach in Yale University history, was among nine coaches indicted.

He added, "For every student admitted through fraud, an honest, a genuinely talented student was rejected".

In the video, the 19-year-old said, "I don't know how much of school I'm going to attend, but will talk to my deans and everyone", in reference to her busy business schedule that requires her to travel a lot. "Can you tell us how to proceed?"
