While the allegations carry legal implications for Loughlin and Giannulli, their daughters' attendance at USC is also in jeopardy.
Regarding the scandal, Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent John Bonavolonta said in a statement (via Today), "We believe everyone charged here today had a role in fostering a culture of corruption and greed that created an uneven playing field for students trying to get into these schools the right way through hard work, good grades and community service".
On a serious note, I still can't believe this whole story about the college admissions bribery scandal is real.
Actress Lori Loughlin (centre) will be allowed to return to Vancouver to complete her contracted work on various Hallmark Channel projects.
Some of the universities targeted in the elaborate cheating scam include Yale, Stanford, UCLA and Georgetown. Prosecutors in the USA attorney's office in Boston say his company, Edge College & Career Network, made $25 million since embarking on the fraud in 2011, offering what he promised was a "guarantee" of admission.
"Now you know your mother thinks you are so dumb, that she had to PAY the school a BRIBE to get you in", another person wrote.
"Before you feel sympathy for these parents for just 'wanting the best for their kids, ' remember that these kids already had so many advantages", Noah said, and a lot of the parents also seem like real jerks.
"Full House to Orange is the New Black", another user said.
None of Lori Loughlin's Fuller House co-stars are publicly commenting on her brush with the law.
"Girl you didn't need to go to college, you would've been just fine making money like you're doing now", wrote Instagram user @oneidaaa_. "People need to put it in perspective". Yes what they did was wrong but so is absolutely smashing them with hateful comments.
The Los Angeles judge ruled that Loughlin could continue traveling to and from British Columbia for a number of productions she is working on as long as she notifies US authorities in advance of each trip.
In addition to her Instagram page, with more than 1 million followers, Olivia Giannulli, 19, manages a YouTube channel with almost 2 million subscribers. Now, when anyone clicks on her page, it says that the user can not be found. She apparently spoke with the Today show about daughter Isabella's acceptance into college back in 2017.
Besides the couple, SAT/ACT administrators, an exam proctor, nine coaches, one college administrator, and parents have been arrested, according to the US Attorney for Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling.
