Loughlin and Huffman hire legal powerhouses in college admissions scandal

Loughlin and Huffman hire legal powerhouses in college admissions scandal

The scheme centered on the owner of a for-profit Newport Beach college admissions company, which wealthy parents are accused of paying to help their children cheat on college entrance exams and which allegedly falsified athletic records of students to enable them to secure admission to elite schools - including UCLA, Stanford, Yale, the University of Southern California and Georgetown - according to court records.

Actor-artist Carrey, who routinely tackles politics with his growing body of work, turned his talents to the college admissions case that recently put "Full House" star Loughlin and "Desperate Housewives" actress Huffman in a spotlight they no doubt would prefer not to be in. Additionally, all parties involved have yet to publicly comment on the allegations.

But she believes that Huffman and Loughlin paying bribes to get their respective daughters into top USA universities oversteps the line.

The official charges for both actresses were "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud".

"Obviously we have advantages that we didn't have as children".

He added, "If I can give them a leg up, I absolutely would".

Huffman has deleted her social media accounts in the wake of the scandal, and is next due in court in Boston on March 29.

The latest star to chime in on all the action was Julia Roberts, who was asked about the situation while doing global press for "Ben Is Back", in which she plays mother to a son struggling with addiction.

Huffman, on the other hand, reportedly paid $15,000 to have someone else take her oldest daughter's SAT scores.

If that weren't enough, Macy also said in an interview with Men's Journal that the best advice he's ever received in life was not to lie.

"It's the cheapest way to go".

Huffman's former Desperate Housewives co-star Nicollette Sheridan wasn't so tactful with her response when asked about the scandal by Access Hollywood.
