  • Actresses, CEO's among those arrested in college admissions scam

In court papers obtained from Massachusetts District Court, Loughlin, 54, and Desperate Housewives star Huffman, 56, were hit with arrest warrants for "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud" on Monday.

According to CNN, Macy is not charged or named in court documents.

The indictees, including actors Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, allegedly paid bribes of up to $6 million to secure admission to their children into elite colleges, including Stanford, the University of Southern California, Yale, and Georgetown. However, at the time of this writing, Loughlin, 54, has not yet entered police custody, as she's reportedly "out of the country", as Christina Dilorio-Sterling, the spokesperson for the United States Attorney's Office for the District of MA, shared with Radar.

The Internet is blowing up with snarky remarks as people connect Lori Loughlin's Full House character - Aunt Becky - with the breaking news of her alleged involvement in a massive college admissions cheating scandal. The scandal is that these parents paid substantial bribes to admissions officers and varsity coaches to get their children admitted to schools under the pretense these children were athletic recruits.

Court documents say Huffman paid $15,000 she disguised as a charitable donation so her daughter could partake in the college entrance cheating scam.

As previously reported, Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters, Isabella and Olivia Jade, appear as recruits on the USC crew team, despite having no real crew experience.

Full House star Lori Loughlin and Golden Globe victor Felicity Huffman are charged with mail fraud in a shocking college admission scandal.

'Felicity huffman & these parents be like "let my daughter into your college; she's a superstar soccer player,"' mocked a different user.

Prosecutors allege that fake athletic profiles were also made to make students look like strong high school athletes when they actually weren't.

The FBI recorded phone calls involving the celebrities and a cooperating witness, according to the criminal complaint. Giannulli's attorney said part of the reason they came to this agreement was with the hopes that Loughlin, also indicted in the case, would receive the same bond deal as well as be allowed to travel to Vancouver.

ABC reports officials have emails from Loughlin as evidence.
