connectVideoCollege admissions scandal: Lawyers for Lori Loughlin and others as a result of the court
Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli firmly convinced that they will not be judged in their next session in the college admissions scandal.
The couple is accused of paying a cool $500,000 in bribes to the admissions committee con-man William “Rick” Singer’s daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella recruited at the University of Southern California (USC) crew team, despite no girl ever a mate.
Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, rejected the plea deal that other parents allegedly involved in the case — including Felicity Huffman — adopted, allegedly because it included imprisonment. Then they were slapped with additional charges of money laundering and conspiracy and each faces up to a total of 40 years in prison if convicted of all counts.

The insider added that while Loughlin and Giannulli have not seen eye to everything in the case, they are fighting the charges “as a team,” pointing, “Lori, in particular, is very well versed in the matter. She is an active participant in her own defense, she feels a valid defense and that, when all the evidence comes out, it will not be found guilty.”

Of course, part of the reason why they are so well informed is because she is not busy with something else: Loughlin was the release of the Hallmark Channel since the scandal broke.

“She’s not working, and her whole life in focus has dramatically changed,” the source said. “It consists of waiting for the next court date and planning her legal defense.”
Loughlin and Giannulli’s lawyer did not immediately return Fox News’ request for comment.
