Full House’ actress out on bond after U.S. college entrance scam exposed

By: Paige Hubbard

Full House” actress Lori Loughlin appeared in federal court in Los Angeles on Wednesday (March 13) accused of taking part in a sprawling scheme exposed this week in which wealthy parents paid for their children to cheat their way into elite U.S. colleges.

U.S. Magistrate Steve Kim ordered Loughlin release from federal custody on a $1 million bond, following a brief hearing.

Douglas Hodge, the former chief executive of the investment firm Pimco and another of the 33 parents charged in the $25 million scam, also appeared in a Boston court on Wednesday. A magistrate judge released him on $500,000 secured bond and overruled a federal prosecutor’s objection to Hodge keeping his passport.

Loughlin and Hodge are among 50 people charged with taking part in the largest such scandal in U.S. history, which prosecutors said steered graduating high school students into elite universities, including Yale, Georgetown, and Stanford, by cheating the admissions process.
