BOSTON, MA (WOIO) - Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman were scheduled in federal court Wednesday afternoon on charges related to the sweeping college admissions and bribery scandal.

The two high-profile celebrities, along with dozens of others, were charged in March with bribing coaches and college admissions officials to get their children into universities across the country.

Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on the sitcom “Full House,” and her husband are accused of paying $500,000 to the University of Southern California in order for their two daughters to be labeled as recruits on the school’s crew team.

Huffman, the star of “Desperate Housewives,” allegedly paid more than $15,000 that impacted the results of her daughter’s college entrance exam.

Neither Loughlin or Huffman have commented publicly on the investigation.
