Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli allegedly paid $500,000 to have both of their daughters recruited for the crew team, a sport which they don't play, at USC. In exchange, Huffman, a "Desperate Housewives" cast member, was directed to bring her daughter to a "controlled" SAT testing center where someone corrected her answers or gave her assistance during the test, the documents say.

From 2011 to 2018, Lelling said wealthy parents made about $25 million in payments to guarantee their children's admission to elite schools, and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents wiretapped phone calls involving some of the parents and a cooperating witness.

Prosecutors said Singer used the cash to bribe two people who administered the exams - Igor Dvorsiky, of Los Angeles, and Lisa "Niki" Williams, of Houston.

Fellow actress Lori Loughlin, who starred in the revamped 90210, was also indicted in the documents. Representatives for Loughlin had no comment.
