Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannulli plead not guilty in college bribery scandal

Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannulli plead not guilty in college bribery scandal

If she had accepted, they may have been able to avoid jail time - at least to some degree.

The site reports that the disgraced actress "refused to accept any jail time and thought the DA was bluffing". She is seeing the light that she will do jail time and is freaking out'.

Isabella and Olivia's statuses at USC are on hold as the school's investigations continue into individual cases. On Tuesday, the couple was indicted on charges of mail fraud and money laundering.

But even with the potential 40-year sentence looming, Lori is reportedly still having a little trouble wrapping her head around the fact that she did anything wrong.

"It's just taking some time for it to sink in that what she was allegedly doing could be considered illegal".

As it was previously reported, the Hallmark Channel severed their working relationship with the legendary actress following her arrest back in March for her involvement in the USC scandal. "It was absolutely a status thing". They were indicted this week in a federal MA court on conspiracy to commit money laundering and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud. Loughlin and Giannulli have not entered a plea nor indicated that they are preparing to do so.

'They really want to make sure that there isn't this perception that these people are able to skate by because they're rich, ' a source told People. "They are scared and they don't know what's coming next".

Giannulli's parents, actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are among 33 parents accused of paying bribes for their children to attend prestigious institutions.

Poking fun at the recent college admissions scandal, Kate McKinnon took on the role of Lori Loughlin who is facing charges for her part in the scam.

They appeared at Boston federal court briefly last week and weren't asked to put in a plea.

The new charges came a day after federal prosecutors said Huffman and 13 other defendants charged in the probe dubbed "Operation Varsity Blues" had agreed to plead guilty.

Prosecutors have said they will seek a prison sentence on the low end of four to 10 months for Huffman, who was charged with paying $15,000 to boost her daughter's SAT score. This transgression toward the people I will proceed for the rest of my life. "My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty".

Huffman, however, allegedly paid much less than Loughlin and Giannulli.
