They are parents to two daughters - 18-year-old Sofia and sixteen-year-old Georgia.

Felicity made a ''charitable contribution of $15,000…to participate in the college entrance cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.”

Documents also showed that Felicity made arrangements to pursue the scheme for a second time to help her younger daughter to get a into a renowned university, but she decided not to.

Lori Loughlin, star of Full House and the 90210 reboot, is also involved in the cheating scam alongside her husband Mossimo Giannulli.

Mossimo's bond was set at $1 million, secured against the couple’s home. 

Felicity and Mossimo are set to appear in court on March 29 and both have surrendered their passports to the court. 

Felicity has turned off her Instagram comments while Lori has deleted her social media accounts. 

There are 46 people charged in the largest university admissions scheme in U.S. history - others include CEOs, investors, and other elite professionals.

While Felicity was arrested, William was not charged although the prosecutor in court stated that he is a witness in the case.

Lori was not at her home and has not yet been arrested although she along with her husband, Felicity and William, faces a single count of mail fraud in connection with the scheme.

Lori and her husband are accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into USC.

The scheme allegedly centered around William “Rick” Singer, a Newport Beach, Calif., admissions consultant, who pleads guilty in the case.

This situation is unprecedented and understandably people are angry as by buying kids places in elite universities, others who deserve it are losing out.
