Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have been accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to college admissions consultant William "Rick" Singer to get their daughters — one of whom is YouTube star Olivia Jade — admitted to USC as sham recruits for the crew team.

Huffman reportedly paid $15,000 to a fake charity that helped her daughter get a higher SAT score.

The "Desperate Housewives" star plead guilty to the charges and now may have to face serious consequences.

As we reported, prosecutors are recommending Huffman spend one month in prison, along with a year of supervised release, and pay a fine of $20,000.

Eva Longoria, who starred alongside Huffman on the show, wrote a letter on her former co-star's behalf.

As far as Loughlin, her co-star John Stamos seems to be in her corner. She and her husband are expected in court this month.

Lifetime's "College Admissions Scandal" is set to air on October 10.
