The FBI says actress Lori Loughlin (LAWK'-lin) has been taken into custody in connection with a scheme in which wealthy parents paid bribes to get their children into top colleges.
She is expected to appear in a Boston courtroom March 29 to address the charges.
Other prominent parents charged by the Boston U.S. attorney's office include Felicity Huffman, the actor who starred in "Desperate Housewives"; Gordon Caplan, the co-chairman of worldwide law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher; and Bill McGlashan Jr., who heads a buyout investment arm of private equity firm TPG Capital. Prosecutors have charged 33 parents, including Hollywood stars Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin; Loughlin's husband, the fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli; and Bill McGlashan, a founder of TPG Capital, one of the largest private equity investment firms in the world.
Following her indictment on Tuesday, she was released on a $250,000 bond and was ordered to surrender her passport. The court agreed that she will be allowed to continue filming in Vancouver.
