Lori Loughlin pleads guilty in the college admission scandal
No cool, Becky.
Full House sweetheart, Lori Laughlin has got herself in quite a bit of a knot. She and designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli were accused of working with William ‘Rick’ Singer in an effort to get their daughters Bella Rose and Olivia Jade into the University of Southern California. The college admissions scandal is in no way serving in favor of the couple. Now, they have agreed to plead guilty and they did that. Now they are to serve a certain time behind bars after their failed attempts to get the charges dropped. That said, the judge has yet to announce their sentence. Fox News sources say,
The judge neither rejected nor accepted the terms of their plea agreement, saying he’ll issue an official ruling after reviewing pre-sentencing reports. The couple is scheduled for official sentencing on Aug. 21 at 2:30 p.m. for Loughlin and 11:00 a.m. for Giannulli.
Lori Loughlin and Massimo Giannilli plead guilty – Await sentence.
Michael Zweiback also talks to Fox News about the situation. He thinks that if Lori Loughlin and husband do not serve prison time, the courts will face a backlash on the basis of preferential treatment.
If they do not serve time, then the outcry will be that they did receive preferential treatment. Especially given that other defendants, in this case, have served time in prison.
Current reports say that Lori Loughlin is to spend two months in prison. After that, she will be out on parole for two years. A fine of $150,000 and 100 hours of community service will also be there. Her husband will have it worse. 5 months in prison, $250,000 fine, two years on parole, and 250 hours of community service.
There is no best-case scenario at this point for the couple. Funny enough, in Full House, Lori Loughlin’s character Becky’s husband Jesse (John Stamos), lies to get the kids into a prestigious pre-school. And on top of it all, their fame is not helping their case.
