Her husband, the designer Mossimo Gianulli, is also charged with fraud, and appeared in court in Los Angeles on Tuesday before being released on $1 million bail. The parents are alleged to have paid for fake entrance exams and phony athletic achievements in return for guaranteed university places.

"This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud", Lelling said Tuesday.

Federal prosecutors in Boston charged William (Rick) Singer, 58, with running the racketeering scheme through his Edge College & Career Network, which served a roster of clients, including CEOs and Hollywood actors.

Several colleges have already released their statements claiming they were "victims" of the bribery scheme, Fox News reported earlier.

She is expected to appear in a Boston court on March 29 for a preliminary hearing. 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". Dozens, including Huffman, the Emmy-winning star of ABC's "Desperate Housewives", were arrested by midday Tuesday. Macy was not charged; authorities did not say why.

Several defendants, including Huffman, were charged with conspiracy to commit fraud, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors allege the couple paid $500,000 to have their daughters labeled as crew-team recruits at the University of Southern California, even though neither is a rower.

Cleveland Browns signing DT Sheldon Richardson
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter on Tuesday, Richardson is expected to sign a three-year deal to join the Cleveland Browns . Named to the Pro Bowl in 2014, Richardson has 333 tackles and 23.5 sacks in 89 career regular season games with 87 starts.


One of the daughters, Olivia Gianulli, has become a prominent influencer on social media under the name "Olivia Jade".

"I was essentially buying or bribing the coaches for a spot", Singer said as he pleaded guilty to charges including racketeering, money laundering and obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors said it was up to the universities to decide what to do with students admitted through cheating.

In many cases, the students were not aware their parents had arranged for the cheating, prosecutors said, although in other cases they knowingly took part.

Cole Beasley shades Cowboys after signing with the Bills
