By now, you're probably aware of the 40-some people, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, who were charged Tuesday in the largest college admissions scam in the history of the United States, but some attention has moved to Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Jade Giannulli, who allegedly benefited from the scam. The makeup obsessed teen and beauty vlogger is a freshman at University of Southern California (USC), a place the Justice Department alleges she was able to secure because her parents Fuller House's Lori, 54, and designer Mossimo Giannulli, 55, allegedly committed mail fraud. "Some of these individuals may have been minors at the time of their application process".
When she returned to the US, she was arrested for her alleged involvement in the scandal along with her husband.
"Will not affiliate with negative cheaters; will toss all my current Sephora; remove this affiliation with Olivia jade before I purchase more", wrote one commenter.
Andrew Lelling, the USA attorney in Boston, stated at a news conference that "for every student admitted through fraud, an honest, genuinely talented student was rejected", Reuters reported. The university did not address the status of the Giannulli sisters or other students. "I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend but I'm gonna go in and talk to my deans and everyone, and hope that I can try and balance it all", she said.
Sacramento resident William "Rick" Singer was described by federal officials as the mastermind in the case.
It's very possible Lori's daughter is in hiding amid the fallout as it's been said she actually flew home early from a spring break trip! He took in an estimated $25 million in bribes from parents, allegedly helped them create glowing athletic and academic profiles for their children, in addition to staging and/or creating photos of their children engaged in sports activities with the use of Photoshop. If that wasn't enough, the paid proctor agreed to secretly correct her answers afterward, which led to a score that was 400 points over her PSAT. The FBI opted to pick her up at her home instead.
Her parents are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
Loughlin, best known for her role on Full House (and Netflix's Fuller House revival), on Wednesday turned herself in to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in advance of a court hearing.
Huffman was apparently expecting an arrest and would have surrendered herself to authorities.
CNN has reached out to representatives for the couple.
The other schools that accepted applicants linked to the scheme include Stanford, Georgetown, UCLA, Wake Forest, University of San Diego, and University of Texas at Austin, court records show.
