Actress Lori Loughlin surrendered herself into FBI custody Wednesday after being indicted as part of a multi-million dollar college admissions scam.

According to ABC News, Loughlin turned herself in this morning and is expected to appear in court later today to face fraud charges.

She, along with her husband Mossimo Giannulli, was charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Actress Felicity Huffman was also charged with the same crime and was arrested Tuesday.

While authorities had reportedly shown up at Loughlin’s home Tuesday, the actress was in Vancouver filming a Hallmark Channel film. She flew back Wednesday and turned herself in.

According to the indictment, which involves 50 people nationwide, Loughlin and her husband paid $500K to get their daughters into USC as part of the crew team. The girls did not row for the team and authorities say it was all part of the larger scheme, which they are referring to as “Operation Varsity Blues.”
