What’s worse, being named a liar and a cheat by authorities…or having your name splashed across the world and named as a liar and a cheat? That’s what actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are waking up to today – and they’re on a list of nearly 50 others charged in what’s being called the largest college cheating scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.
Neither Huffman nor Loughlin have made any statements, but Huffman is out of jail after posting a $250-thousand bond when she appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom – she’ll be back in court (in Boston) on March 29th. Loughlin is expected to surrender to authorities later today. According to reports, Huffman was taken into custody at gunpoint at her home in Los Angeles, while Loughlin was in Vancouver when police showed up at her residence. Loughlin’s husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, was taken into custody with a bond set at $1-million. He has since been released – and will also appear in Boston on the 29th.
