Huffman, Loughlin appear before federal judge

Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin appeared at a federal court in Boston Wednesday to face charges tied to what prosecutors call the largest college admissions scam in U.S. history.

They're among the 33 wealthy parents entangled in what's been dubbed 'Operation Varsity Blues,' accused of paying a college counseling service to get their kids into top colleges by cheating on entrance exams and paying bribes to coaches.

In the courtroom, Loughlin sat beside her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli, also charged in the case.

The two, along with Huffman, were told to limit their international travel and remove any guns from their homes as they await trial.

Prosecutors have been holding plea talks with the parents charged.

Former Full House star Loughlin and her husband are accused of paying $500,000 to have their two daughters - including social media influencer Olivia Jade - named as recruits to USC's crew team, even though they did not row competitively.

Huffman is alleged to have paid $15,000 to have her daughter's answers on her SAT test secretly corrected.

Huffman is married to actor William H Macy, who is not charged in the case.

The alleged man behind the scheme, California college admissions consultant William "Rick" Singer, has pled guilty, as have at least three college coaches.
