BOSTON — Actress Felicity Huffman appeared in federal court Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles following a morning arrest after federal prosecutors named the star as one of 50 people charged in the largest-ever college admissions conspiracy prosecuted by the Justice Department.

A judge said Huffman can be released on $250,000 bail but must restrict her travel to the continental United States. Husband William H. Macy attended his wife’s initial court appearance. He has not been charged and authorities have not said why.

The article goes on to state the following:

Federal prosecutors charged 33 affluent parents, including CEOs and actress Lori Loughlin, nine college athletics coaches and others in the sweeping bribery case that targeted elite universities and colleges. The elaborate conspiracy involved cheating on the SAT and ACT and parents paying coaches “enormous sums” to get their children into schools by fabricating their athletic credentials.

Loughlin is expected to appear in court Wednesday. After that, legal proceedings will move to Boston, Thom Mrozek, spokesman for the United States Attorney’s Office tells USA TODAY. Huffman was one of about a dozen people taken into custody Tuesday.
