Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli, are set to finally plead guilty in the college admissions scandal court case.
The college admissions saga is finally over! Not really, but it’s over for these two. Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have agreed to plead guilty to fraud charges for lying to get their daughter’s admitted to USC. I hope she realizes what a bad investment that was, at least for one daughter. It’s unknown what kind of a student Bella was, but Olivia definitely would rather not be there. I wish she would have just mailed me the the $500,000 she wasted on Olivia. I actually wanted to be in school. Honestly not surprised by her sudden change of heart because her last chance at evading the charges was just denied. This judge is not messing around.
The Plea Deal
According to a press release from the District Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts, will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Through the plea agreement Lori will spend two months in a federal prison and pay a fine of $150,000. Once released from prison she faces two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service. It’s not 14 days (11 days) in prison, but it’s still not that big a deal. Her husband on the other hand will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. His punishment is slightly more severe with five months in prison, a $250,000 fine and two years of supervised release with 250 hours of community service. I said slightly right?
These two got off easy considering the fact that the maximum sentence for these crimes is up to 20 years. I mean who is really surprised though. Felicity Huffman got two weeks. Lori and Mossimo are the 23rd and 24th parents, out of 50 involved, to plead guilty to their crimes. I mean, it’s great that they have been reprimanded and were caught, but plenty of people find a legal way to pay their way into a spot at one of these schools. There isn’t much that can be done in those cases, so I’m not really sure if this scandal really is going to have a huge impact in the long run.
I might be in the minority here, but I think enough time has passed to where I don’t even think about it. Not that I thought of Lori Loughlin much before anyways. I can still watch Full House and enjoy scenes with her in it and if she has projects in the future, I’ll probably be able to watch those too. She made a mistake, I can get over it. Her being in the project, doesn’t make it or break it for me. What I can’t watch again probably is any of Olivia Jade’s YouTube videos. The amount of unappreciated privilege she has just irks me. Didn’t really like her videos before, but now I really hate them. Sorry not sorry.
Anyways, I can’t wait for pictures of her in her jumpsuit to leak to the press and to see how long she’ll actually serve. My bet is a month or less. Let’s just wait and see.
Do you think she’ll be able to save her career post jail? Let me know in the comments!
