2 months ago

Louri Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, are facing a prison sentence in the College admission scandal. The couple pleads not guilty to the charges made against them regarding the payment of $500,000 to get both their daughters Isabella and Olivia Jade admitted into the University of Southern California as members of the Rowing team.

The couple after pleading guilty to the bribery charges were soon hit with additional charges like money laundering and conspiracy, which could give them a lengthy-term of up to 40 years in prison.  The federal judge is said to set the trial date to be set in 2020, and besides Loughlin and her husband, 19 more parents have pleaded not guilty to the conspiracy charges.

The U.S attorney Andrew Lelling is overseeing the prosecution’s case and in a rare interview on News center5 said “If she’s(Louri Loughlin)is convicted, I don’t think I’m giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”I can’t tell you exactly what that would be.” He continued, “Let’s say she goes through to trial: If it’s after trial, I think certainly we’d be asking for something substantially higher. If she resolved her case short of trial, something a little lower than that.“However, Another accused in the case who is also a famous actress Felicity Huffman admitted to charges of conspiracy to commit fraud and was regretful of her action of paying $15,000 to inflate her daughter’s SAT score. Huffman was one of the first accused to be given a prison sentence out of 34 parents who are being accused in the scandal. Huffman was given a 14-days prison sentence with a fine of $30,000 and 250 hours of community service.
