    Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannulli Plead Not Guilty In College Cheating Scandal


    Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, entered not guilty pleas Monday in federal court in Boston.

    Both waived their right to appear in court for arraignment.

    Federal prosecutors announced additional charges last week against Loughlin, Giannulli and 14 other wealthy parents. They face one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest-services mail and wire fraud, as well as one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

    Loughlin is best known for playing the role of Aunt Becky on Full House. Giannulli's Mossimo brand was a core clothing label at Target until 2017.

    Lori Loughlin, 15 Others Indicted On New Charges In College Admissions Scandal
    Giannulli and Loughlin are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes arranged by college admissions consultant William "Rick" Singer to get their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team, despite neither of them being a rower.

    According to the Justice Department's superseding indictment, Giannulli and Loughlin made payments in 2016 and 2017 to former USC Associate Athletic Director Donna Heinel and to Key Worldwide Foundation, which was operated by Singer.

    How much jail time is "Aunt Becky" looking at for role in college admission scam?


    "Federal sentencing guidelines for fraud are primarily based on the amount of money involved, how sophisticated the fraud was what role the person played in the alleged scheme, and whether they were the ‘leader, middle, [or] low-end,'” Pate said.

    With that in mind, Loughlin could look at "37-46 months if convicted at trial” and between “27-33 months [if she enters a] guilty plea.”

    To me, if her guilt can be proven, her pleading not guilty only seals the deal on her fate where her Hollywood existence is concerned. She won't even be able to get work in the commercial making field. Also, does she have any idea the bad example that she is setting for her kids? If she doesn't know that jail is what happens when you don't take the right kind of responsibility for your actions, how will her kids ever learn?

    God bless you and them always!!!

    seems like when you feel entitled, you can do no wrong because you feel you are doing it for the "right" reasons.

    kinda symbolic of the problems we face as a country in that if you can buy a better way, you do regardless of the rules. times are changing and she needs to change this tactic quickly or she's going to spend the rest of her time in "ladies only" showers.

    This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Since when does the FBI enforce admissions standards at colleges. The FBI didn't go after Al Capone this hard. Why should we pay for their incarceration for a garbage crime. Let them pay a big fine and let's go home.

    The fact is that the people who complain the loudest are the people who would do the same thing if they had the money.

    I think she's aiming for another reality tv show about women behind bars.
