Lori Loughlin Just Pleaded Not Guilty In College Admissions Scandal
She faces a minimum of 4 years in jail.
You're in big trouble mister! Unfortunately, Michelle Tanner's cuteness can't get Lori Loughlin out of this one. Lori Loughlin just pleaded not guilty in college admissions scandal.
While actress Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty and also gave her first statement since the scandal broke, Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli plead not guilty. Even though there is evidence against them, they have entered plea deals to all of the charges against them. The charges are: conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
What does this mean for Lori and Mossimo? Well, if they are charged, they can face a minimum of four years and nine months in jail. Whereas Felicity Huffman has a minimum of four months since she pleaded guilty.
The couple also did not show up in court, however, they sent their pleas through court documents.
This scandal first broke a month ago when Lori Loughlin, husband Mossimo Giannulli, Felicity Huffman and a ton of other parents were arrested in the college admissions scam. While they were all charged with the same things, Lori and Mossimo got an extra charge added to them for not taking the same plea deal that Felicity took.
Now that they plead not guilty, we will just have to wait and see what happens. The plea deal that Felicity took is apparently still on the table for everyone who did not take it, but it looks like Lori and Mossimo are taking another route.
Lori and Mossimo were seenon April 3rd, while Lori was smiling, waving, and actually signing autographs for fans. According to multiple sources, Lori didn't take the original plea deal because she thought the court was "bluffing" and broke down once she was hit with the additional charge.
I guess we will have to see how all of this pans out for Lori and Mossimo, however, I think with all of the evidence against them, it's clear they'll be seeing the inside of a jail cell.
