Lori Loughlin and husband plead not guilty in college admissions case

Lori Loughlin and daughters

Actor Lori Loughlin, and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, leave the federal courthouse after facing charges in a nationwide college admissions cheating scheme, in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S., April 3, 2019.

Among the accused parents who were his clients, 13 agreed last week to plead guilty to conspiring to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, prosecutors say.

The "Full House" star and her husband waived their right to appear in court for an arraignment and entered not guilty pleas in documents filed Monday, according to the Associated Press.

Loughin and her husband allegedly paid more than $500,000 to have her two daughters designated as crew recruits on the University of Southern California's team.

Court documents show at least eight others in addition to Loughlin and Giannulli have filed pleas of not guilty in recent days: Gamal Abdelaziz, of Las Vegas; I-Hsin "Joey" Chen, of Newport Beach, Calif.; Amy Colburn and Gregory Colburn, of Palo Alto, Calif.; Michelle Janavs, of Newport Coast, Calif.; Elisabeth Kimmel, of Las Vegas; David Sidoo, of Vancouver, Canada; and Robert Zangrillo, of Miami.

Last week, Felicity Huffman, who was also charged in the scandal, announced she will plead guilty. Huffman was accused of paying $15,000 to have someone take her daughter's Saturday. "My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty".

There is no hiding to the fact that support from the other end could yielded better results for KKR in the matches that they lost. The all-rounder duo which I have picked is the West Indies and Kolkata Knight Riders pair of Sunil Narine and Andre Russell .

Loughlin's representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment by EW. According to the reports, federal prosecutors were requiring some prison time for all the plea deals, so Huffman is expected to do between zero and six months, per federal guidelines.

Loughlin has been criticized for seemingly not taking the indictment as seriously as others.

Singer has already pleaded guilty in a Boston federal court to charges of racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice.

Experts told Yahoo that a prison sentence would be "traumatizing" to both actresses - especially Loughlin, who faces significantly more time.
