Lori Loughlin, others pleading not guilty in college scam

Lori Loughlin, others pleading not guilty in college scam

The rumored highest amount of time they could spend in jail is 20 years.

According to TMZ, they did not enter their plea in person. So she didn't plead, and then they hit her with another charge.

Singer has pleaded guilty and is cooperating with investigators. "That's all they can do".

Prosecutors added a money laundering conspiracy charge against Loughlin, Giannulli and more than a dozen other parents who are still fighting the case, increasing the pressure on them to plead guilty.

Actress Lori Loughlin, husband Mossimo Giannulli, and at least seven other parents facing felony charges in connection with the college entrance scam are asking a judge to accept not guilty pleas and to allow them to skip their arraignments in Boston's federal court.

Prosecutors say they will seek a prison sentence that's on the low end of between four and 10 months for Huffman.

Desperate Housewives alum Felicity Huffman was another big name listed within the scandal. USA Today reported last week that prosecutors say the new indictments resulted from the defendants allegedly "conspiring to launder bribes and other payments in furtherance of the fraud by funneling them through Singer's purported charity and his for-profit corporation, as well as by transferring money into the United States, from outside the United States, for the goal of promoting the fraud scheme". That man has since been revealed to be William Rick Singer, the ringleader of the scam who created a fake non-profit, charitable foundation that served as a front to launder payments from the parents.

The Fuller House actress' indictment in the college admissions scandal finally got the full SNL treatment this weekend. Singer would then instruct the parents to write off the alleged bribes as tax-deductible "donations" to his non-profit.

The couple is accused of paying $500,000 to ensure their daughters' admission to the University of Southern California as athletic recruits for the crew team, despite neither girl being an athlete. Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to boost her daughter's SAT score.

The criminal complaint against Giannulli and Loughlin includes evidence from a cooperating witness, emails, bank records and a recorded phone call with each parent. "Accordingly, Ms. Loughlin respectfully requests that the court accept this waiver and enter Ms. Loughlin's plea of NOT GUILTY".
