Lori Loughlin to Plead 'Guilty' in College Admissions Scandal, Will Serve 2 Months in Prison

After maintaining her innocence for months, Lori Loughlin will be actually entering a “guilty” plea for her alleged part in the college admissions scandal.

The Department of Justice press release states, “Loughlin will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, while Giannulli will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud.”

The press release also revealed their punishment, saying, “Under the terms of Loughlin’s plea agreement, the parties have agreed to a sentence, subject to the Court’s approval, of two months in prison, a $150,000 fine and two years of supervised release with 100 hours of community service. Under the terms of Giannulli’s plea agreement, the parties have agreed to a sentence, subject to the Court’s approval, of five months in prison, a $250,000 fine and two years of supervised release with 250 hours of community service.”

If you don’t know, Lori and her husband Mossimo Giannulli allegedly paid $500,000 to have their daughters, Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli, passed off as rowing recruits.

For months, Lori and her husband both alleged that they were duped by consultant Rick Singer and claimed they did not understand that these were alleged bribes.

Just a few weeks ago, Lori‘s legal team seemed to be taking a different route.
