” Of the 50 people charged as part of the FBI‘s Operation Varsity Blues, 33 were parents, officials said, warning that the investigation is ongoing and others could be charged.”

Among those charged are actresses Felicity Huffman, best known for her role on the television show “Desperate Housewives,” and Lori Loughlin, who appeared on “Full House,” according to court documents.

 

“Authorities said the FBI investigation, code named Operation Varsity Blues, uncovered a network of wealthy parents who paid thousands of dollars to a California man who boosted their children’s chances of gaining entrance into elite colleges, such as Yale and Stanford, by paying people to take tests for their children, test administrators to allow it to happen, and college coaches and administrators to identify the applicants as athletes.”
