Twitter Roasts Full House’s Aunt Becky For Involvement in College Admissions Scandal

According to CNN, Loughlin is now on her way to Los Angeles, where she plans to surrender to authorities.

"We are aware of the ongoing wide-ranging criminal investigation involving universities nationwide, including USC", a statement released from the University of Southern California on Tuesday read. News show that both Huffman and Loughlin have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

"I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend", she told her almost 2 million subscribers, after delving into her extensive work schedule. Under the terms of her bond, Huffman also surrendered her passport. The scheme apparently worked, so this well-connected mom and dad allegedly opted to try the same tactic with younger daughter Olivia Giannulli. She finished with a score of 1420, an improvement of 400 points over her PSAT taken a year earlier.
