Parents, others face new charges in U.S. college admissions scandal

BOSTON, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Federal prosecutors on Tuesday said they had brought additional charges against 18 wealthy parents, former university athletic officials and others accused of participating in the largest U.S. college admissions scam ever uncovered.

Among those facing new charges are 11 parents including “Full House” star Lori Loughlin, who federal prosecutors in Boston say conspired to bribe University of Southern California employees to secure the admission of her two daughters. (Reporting by Nate Raymond in Boston)
