Here is The List Of Celebrities, Business Leaders Charged in MASSIVE College Fraud Scheme


On Tuesday morning, Federal prosecutors released a pretty large list of business leaders and celebrities who were caught up in a massive college admission scandal.

The $25 million dollar scheme shows how CEO’s and other elites in America paid BIG money to get their kids into universities,  such as Yale, Georgetown, and Stanford.

Here is a quick glance at some of those who have been charged in the case that has rocked the country.

LORI LOUGHLIN AND MOSSIMO GIANNULLI

Hollywood actress Lori Loughlin, who starred as Becky on the ABC sitcom “Full House,” and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, the founder of clothing company Mossimo, were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes in 2016 and 2017 to have their two daughters designated as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team. The couple’s daughters, however, never participated in crew, according to prosecutors.

FELICITY HUFFMAN

Hollywood actress Felicity Huffman, who played Lynette Scavo on ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” was accused of paying $15,000 to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter in 2017. Felicity Huffman is also accused of making a similar arrangement for her second daughter before deciding against it.

JANE BUCKINGHAM

Boutique marketing firm chief executive officer Jane Buckingham, who has appeared on “The Today Show,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” and “The View” is accused of paying $50,000 to have another person to take the ACT exam for her son in July of 2018. Buckingham gave a handwriting sample from her son to the other person so that he could attempt to match his handwriting on the exam, the complaint said.

DOUGLAS HODGE

Douglas Hodge, the former CEO of the investment management firm Pimco, was accused of paying bribes from 2008 to 2015 in order to get two of his children into USC, one as a football recruit and the other for soccer. He also is accused of having another daughter falsify her application to Georgetown in which she indicated she won multiple United States Tennis Association matches, though she had never played a USTA match, according to the complaint.
