As of right now, more than 40 people have been indicted in the scheme that allegedly involved students gaining entrance to schools including Georgetown, Stanford, Wake Forest University, UCLA and Yale as recruited athletes — regardless of their athletic ability, the news site reports.

The feds broke it down and named William Rick Singer as the ringleader. They say he created a fake non-profit, charitable foundation which served as front to launder the payments from parents. Most of the parents paid between $200k and $400k for his help. Other payments apparently went as high as $6.5 million. All told, they say investigators uncovered about $25 million in bribes. Singer allegedly instructed the parents they could write off the alleged bribes as tax-deductible “donations” to his non-profit, TMZ reports.

According to the docs, the feds actually recorded phone calls in which Loughlin and Huffman talked about the scheme with a witness who was cooperating with authorities. The shocking part about all of this is that most of the kids admitted to the schools had no idea their parents allegedly bribed them to get them to where they are, accruing to feds.

The latest reports say Felicity Huffman has just been arrested at her home. There is an arrest warrant for Lori Loughlin.
