Prosecutors are sending 'target letters' to others linked to college admissions scam, an official tells CNN

(CNN) Federal prosecutors have been sending so-called target letters to people associated with the college admissions scandal, a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation confirmed to CNN.

People who have received them include students, graduates and other adults, and they are not all related to the same charge, the official added. The official wouldn't confirm whether the students or graduates are related to the parents already charged in the case or if they are new potential defendants.

Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are among the high-profile figures caught up in the scandal, which has embroiled dozens of wealthy parents, college coaches and standardized test administrators. Prosecutors say some of the parents facilitated cheating on the SATs and ACTs on behalf of their children, and some parents bribed college coaches to smooth their children's path into college.

The target letters have been sent by the government since mid-March, when the case was first unsealed.

The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times first reported prosecutors' use of these letters.
