Lori Loughlin Surrenders to FBI Amid College Admissions Scandal

Lori Loughlin has reportedly surrendered to the FBI on Wednesday (March 13) and is in custody.

An FBI spokeswoman confirmed to the AP that she is currently in police custody in Los Angeles and will appear in court later today in connection with the alleged college admissions scandal.

According to reports, Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 to get their two daughters accepted into the University of Southern California by pretending that they were athletes on the crew team.

Actress Felicity Huffman, along with others, are also allegedly involved. Felicity is charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in an alleged college admissions cheating scam.

    I thought it was common knowledge that rich people made “donations” to colleges to get their children accepted. Didn’t realize they were cheating the system this bad. Hope their children benefited from their college experience and it was worth it for these parents now that they’re paying the consequences.!

  • mahbelle

    their kids are too stupid to get into college on their own so i doubt they benefited or even graduated.

    With regards to her daughter, she only started attending 6 months ago, so…

    It isn’t always a matter of the child’s intelligence. Some schools have a limited number of spots and look for more well rounded students. Athletics and other forms of student environment is a plus on the applications.

    It does happen and sometimes the schools offer perks if they are recruiting. There are though rules regulations that have to be followed. It’s the same with political donations and other things, supposed to be anyway. Bribery is different.
    I can’t understand why the parents would care so much as to do this. It’s doubtful their children would apply themselves and thrive in a position for which they weren’t qualified.

    What they did was wrong but no need to attack the children. They are not necessarily “dumb” or “not smart enough to get into college” but maybe not Ivy-league or what ever college they wanted to get into worthy.

    This is about 4 things, the Vanity and bragging rights of the parents, all parent’s desire for their children to succeed in life, GREED, and privilege associated with attending certain colleges that gives you an edge on the job market and connections.

    In this case, the kids were demonstrable idiots (even now)

  • greppinwolf

    No. These kids are morons. Pretty clearly. All their social media shows just how stupid they are. UCLA and USC aren’t tough schools to get into. Or even bragging rights. (Yale was practically the only one that would hold any privilege of the schools in the scandal.)

  • MyName

    Being ungrateful lazy spoiled brats who display entitlement behavior doesn’t though mean they necessarily have low IQs. Hopefully the most of them as they mature will regret the healthy opportunities they squandered.

  • MyName

    Almost all of young social media is stupid. That isn’t a matter of intelligence. If it was then they’d just about all fail.

  • MyName

    Children shouldn’t be taught to get what they haven’t earned. They knew what was happening. Some of them could have achieved more if they had tried. They were lazy and allowed to be. They should have then paid those consequences but now will pay for this issue, along with their parents.

    Seeing as how Lori’s daughter has a YT page and spent a great deal of time on her videos moaning about having to go to college rather than have fun to the point there was backlash with people reminding her she had so many chances others didn’t…then I doubt it was worth it.
