During an interview with the Zach Sang Show posted on March 8, Olivia Jade, 19, said fans often message her on social media asking for advice about the college admissions process. He has pleaded guilty. "We are going to conduct a case-by-case review for current students and graduates that may be connected to the scheme alleged by the government", USC said in a statement released to HollywoodLife on March 13. Isabella Rose Giannulli, 20, is also enrolled at the university. "One was to cheat on the SAT or ACT, and the other was to use his connections with Division I coaches and use bribes to get these parents' kids into school with fake athletic credentials".
Only days after a multi-million dollar scam was revealed involving college admissions, the daughter of one of the actresses involved is now losing endorsement deals left and right.
Full House actress Lori Loughlin appeared in federal court in Los Angeles on Wednesday to face charges of taking part in a scheme in which dozens of wealthy parents are accused of paying for their children to cheat their way into prestigious USA universities.
The lawsuit also named the University of California, Los Angeles, Wake Forest, Georgetown University and others. "That sounds so bad, they didn't make me", she said. Giannulli posted bond and was released Tuesday.
Loughlin later admitted that her daughters were feeling pressured before she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly bribed USC to let their children in. She appeared in court for a hearing just a few hours later and a spokesperson for the United States Attorney's Office told ET the actress would be released on a $250,000 bond.
A lawyer for the 61-year-old Laguna Beach, California, man said Hodge isn't a flight risk and he returned to the USA when he learned of the charges.
Federal Bureau of Investigation officials says Loughlin is in custody Wednesday in Los Angeles. She was filming in Vancouver when the feds came looking for her.
Two college students have filed a lawsuit against the University of Southern California, Yale University and other colleges where prosecutors say parents paid bribes to ensure their children's admission.
"I'm disappointed in myself", she said of the partying comment.
Prosecutors have said colleges are not targets of their criminal case.
Loughlin's attorneys requested similar conditions for the actress even though she was not present in court. While Felicity Huffman spent $15,000 to get her daughter to be able to cheat on the college entrance exam, Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli paid $500,000 to get their daughters "recruited" to be on the crew team.
They were among 50 people charged in the scheme.
Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on "Full House", faces felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Loughlin also stars in Hallmark's ongoing "Garage Sale Mysteries" movies and the series "When Calls the Heart".
She is scheduled to appear in court there in the afternoon. Olivia's mother has not been arrested yet, but she's been charged.

"Beginning in or about 2011, and continuing through the present, the defendants-principally individuals whose high-school aged children were applying to college-conspired with others to use bribery and other forms of fraud to facilitate their children's admission to colleges and universities in the District of MA and elsewhere, including Yale University, Stanford University, the University of Texas, the University of Southern California, and the University of California-Los Angeles, among others", an affidavit in support of the criminal complaint alleged.
