Two well-known actresses are among the 50 charged in a nationwide college cheating scam.

That person proctored her eldest daughter’s exam and corrected her incorrect answers.

The cheating reportedly scored the student a 1420 on the test, a400 point increase from her PSAT score.

Loughlin is accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to have her two daughters recruited to the USC Crew team.

The complaint says neither daughter was actually a rower.

Athletic coaches from Yale, Stanford, the University of Southern California, Wake Forest, and Georgetown, among others, are implicated in the case.

The indictment accuses defendants of committing crimes between 2011 and 2019.
