Actress Lori Loughlin posts bail, released on $1 million bail

Actress Lori Loughlin turned herself in on Wednesday to authorities, one day after federal officials accused the actress and her husband of being involved in a major bribery scheme involving parents using bribes to help their children gain entry into elite colleges without merit.

Loughlin posted a $1 million bail on Wednesday, the LA Times reported.

Loughlin, who was on the cast of the hit 90s sitcom "Full House," is accused of spending $500,000 in bribes to help her two daughters gain admission into USC. Loughlin's daughters allegedly gained entrance into USC as crew recruits, despite not having the credentials to participate in the sport.

Fellow actress Felicity Huffman was also among those indicted on Tuesday. She was accused of paying $15,000 to a fictitious charity, and in return, would allow her daughter to take the SAT with a proctor who would then alter the answers to the SAT.

Huffman was released on a $250,000 bail on Wednesday.

Neither actress has gone to trial yet.
