"For every student admitted through fraud an honest, genuinely talented student was rejected", he added.

Federal prosecutors in Boston charged William "Rick" Singer, 58, with running the scheme through his Edge College & Career Network, which charged up to $2.5 million per child for the services, which were masked as contributions to a scam charity.

What happened: Lori Loughlin was among dozens of parents, college coaches and college prep executives who are accused of carrying out a national conspiracy to help students get into prestigious colleges in the U.S., CNN reports.

The FBI said 13 defendants have been taken into custody in the Los Angeles area, including Huffman. The parents of that student had allegedly paid Singer $1.2 million.

Full House star Lori Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on the beloved sitcom, and Felicity Huffman were among 50 people charged in an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of the NCAA, ABC reports.

Court documents say Huffman paid $15,000 that she disguised as a charitable donation so her daughter could partake in the college entrance cheating scam. In exchange, Huffman, a "Desperate Housewives" cast member, was directed to bring her daughter to a "controlled" SAT testing center where someone corrected her answers or gave her assistance during the test, the documents say.

The person told investigators the couple agreed to the plan.

Officials say the sprawling, nationwide corruption probe dubbed Operation Varsity Blues was sparked when someone being interviewed for an unrelated case tipped authorities off.

Loughlin and her husband are accused of agreeing to pay $500,000 in bribe to have their daughters recruited to the USC crew team, even though they had not previously participated in crew sports.

Indeed, Loughlin's daughter, Olivia Giannulli, made headlines past year when she bragged on YouTube that she was going to college to party and likely would not have much time for classes.

"Wealthy parents paid Singer about 25 million dollars in total", said Andrew Lelling, the United States attorney in Boston, Massachusetts where the case was filed.

Prosecutors said it was up to the universities what to do with students admitted through cheating. "They got Aunt Becky out here getting cuffed by the feds", said another user.

Lelling said, via CNN: "This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud".

According to NBC News, the alleged scheme involved parents bribing coaches and administrators in order to secure their children's entrance into elite universities.
