Prosecutors in the USA attorney's office in Boston say his company, Edge College & Career Network, amassed $25 million through the fraud.

She was among dozens swept up in what prosecutors called the largest college admissions fraud scheme they'd ever seen.

Parents spent anywhere from $200,000 to $6.5 million to guarantee their children's admission, officials said. Since 2011, Singer has allegedly also been bribing coaches and university administrators to falsely designate applicants as potential athlete recruits or assign them other preferential designations that improve their chances of acceptance.

The mother of two and husband, Mossimo founder Mossimo Giannullia allegedly gave $500,000 to say her daughter Olivia Jade was part of the rowing team when that was not true, the indictment states.

According to The Blast, a rep for USC says that the university will "conduct a case-by-case review" for past and present students involved in the scandal.

Prosecutors say parents paid an admissions consultant $25 million from 2011 through February 2019 to bribe coaches and administrators to label their children as recruited athletes to boost their chances of getting into schools. Olivia Jade was "at or just below the "low end" of USC's admission standards", according to an email sent from a cooperating witness to Mossimo Giannulli, cited in the documents released Tuesday.

Those locations included a public school in Houston, Texas, and a college-prep school in West Hollywood, California. The documents also allege that some defendants created fake athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes and get them into college. TVLine reports that Huffman, known for her role on Desperate Housewives, a "charitable contribution" of $15,000 (£11,500) to participate in the scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.

Huffman is married to actor William H. Macy.

All three are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, a felony which carries a maximum sentence of five years behind bars.

An attorney for Loughlin did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Rudy Meredith, who resigned last fall as the winningest women's soccer coach in Yale University history, was among nine coaches indicted.
