Lori Loughlin's Attorney Thinks New Information Could Prove Her Innocence in College Admissions Scandal

Lori Loughlin‘s lawyer apparently has new evidence that has come to light in her college admissions scandal case.

Apparently, notes were found that were written by the mastermind of the entire plan, Rick Singer, that suggest he was coerced into saying that Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli’s donations were actually bribes, when they were apparently “legitimate.”

Singer’s notes indicate that FBI agents yelled at him and instructed him to lie by saying that he told his clients who participated in the in the alleged ‘side door’ scheme that their payments were bribes, rather than legitimate donations that went to the schools,” their lawyer said in new papers.

Apparently, one of Rick‘s notes reads, “They continue to ask me to tell a fib and not restate what I told my clients as to where there money was going — to the program not the coach and that it was a donation and they want it to be a payment.”

Their lawyer continued that this new information is “exonerating for the defendants the government has charged with bribery.”

Lori and Mossimo are accused of paying $500,000 to have her daughters admitted to USC as members of the crew team, despite the fact that they did not participate in crew. Their daughters, Bella, 21, and Olivia Jade, 20, are not being charged with anything.
