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.
