Former Full House star Lori Loughlin out Wednesday night on million dollars bond

News

Another big name celebrity out on bond tonight in that massive college admission cheating scandal.

Former Full House star Lori Loughlin is out Wednesday night on a million dollars bond after prosecutors say she paid half a million dollars to get her two kids into USC’s rowing program, even though neither of them are rowers.

Prosecutors say that 25 million dollar “side door” college business involved top tier schools including Yale.

Susan Shifflett, Former Yale Assistant Director of Admissions said,

“They want to just know there is a certain sum of money and I can 100% guarantee that my child can get in, you know, regardless if they actually have the academic prowess to survive in a university.”

Prosecutors say the man at the center of the scam, businessman William Singer, even set up a non profit so parents paying bribes could write them off as charitable deductions.
