On Wednesday, packaged food entrepreneur Peter Sartorio became the first to reveal he plans to plead guilty.

The consultant at the center of the scheme, Rick Singer, pleaded guilty and is cooperating with investigators. His lawyers did not immediately reply to an email for comment.

Huffman was arrested March 12 and released on $250,000 bond on condition that she surrender her passport.

Ferrara said that she's not giving Loughlin a free pass though.

As Loughlin and Giannulli exited the courtroom with their attorneys, the actress thanked court security for holding the door for her and smiled.
