Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli will plead guilty in the College admissions bribery case. Under the Plea Lori Loughlin (aka Aunty Becky on Full House) will serve two months in prison, pay a fine of $150,000 dollars ,two months of supervised release and 100 hours of community service.
Her husband Mossimo Giannuli will be submitting the same guilty plea but with sentencing of 5 months in prison $250,000 dollar fine and 250 hours of community service.
The couple was scheduled to go to trial in October on charges that they paid $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as crew team recruits, but neither actually were on the team.
They helped create fake athletic profiles for their daughters by sending the admitted ringleader of the scheme, admissions consultant Rick Singer, photos of the teens posing on rowing machines, authorities said.
Lawyers for Loughlin and Giannulli had stated the couple believed they were making “legitimate donations” that would go directly to USC as a fundraising gift or support Singer’s charity. They also accused prosecutors of hiding crucial evidence that could prove the couple’s innocence because it would undermine their case.
