Felicity Huffman Spotted After College Admissions Scandal Arrest

According to the unsealed indictment the alleged scheme focused on getting students admitted to elite universities as recruited athletes regardless of their athletic abilities

California resident William Rick Singer was pinpointed as the "ringleader" of the scandal, allegedly helping wealthy parents get their children admitted to some of the nation's most elite schools - such as Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, University of Southern California, among others - through bribes, according to unsealed court documents.

Huffman looked distraught as she waited for her hearing at the Los Angeles Federal Court of Justice on Tuesday.

"Stanford said Tuesday that Mr. Vandemoer had been fired", The Times report read.

Felicity Huffman was arrested in college bribery case by 7 Federal Bureau of Investigation agents with guns drawn. In an open letter, Mamet said: "That a parent's zeal for her children's future may have overcome her better judgment for a moment is not only unfortunate, it is, I know we parents would agree, a universal phenomenon".

Other parents charged include Manuel Henriquez, chief executive of specialty finance lender Hercules Capital; Gordon Caplan, co-chairman of global law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher; Bill McGlashan Jr, who heads a buyout investment arm of private equity firm TPG Capital; and Douglas Hodge, former CEO of the investment management firm Pimco.

Dressed in a blue fleece paired with black trousers, Huffman appeared downcast as she waited by an elevator in the building with what appeared to be two federal agents.

Her attorney cited her community ties and asked that the actress be released on her own recognizance. Huffman and Loughlin were due to appear in federal court in Los Angeles later on Tuesday, prosecutors said.

Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, were accused of taking advantage of the SAT and ACT.

"I'm the outlier in this thing".

Macy talked about his daughter's "stressful" college application process earlier this year. "But it's just my opinion, and we'll see what she wants to do, what Felicity thinks and how the chips fall".

Huffman did get some support Tuesday from playwright and longtime friend David Mamet. The school doesn't get any benefit, the cheaters' kids don't get any smarter or more skilled, and most of all, qualified kids get denied admission to their dream schools while unqualified kids pack up for freshman orientation. But, apparently, the second is against the Law.

Loughlin and her husband, fashion entrepreneur Mossimo Giannuli, allegedly paid $500,000 to have their two daughters designated as members of the USC rowing team, even though they did not row. Both of the couple's daughters were accepted to USC. Follow Yahoo Lifestyle on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

"We're not talking about donating a building", he said.

"I'm insane about them both", he added. "They didn't make me".

Whether Felicity Huffman was speaking from a place of sincerity and full-disclosure or harboring guilt for her recent actions is up for debate; however, either way, it does suggest that her involvement in the cheating scandal should come as no surprise. His lawyer declined to comment.

Huffman began her career on stage, appearing in playwright David Mamet's "Speed the Plow" on Broadway. No matter how much or how little the parents spend, the student still has to do the work, or else his or her test scores and race times won't budge.

For eight seasons she acted alongside Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher and Marcia Cross on "Desperate Housewives", a hit series for ABC that turned the actresses into household names.

Where do Huffman and Loughlin fit in?
