New developments have been revealed in Mossimo and Lori Loughlin’s college admissions case. Reportedly, Mossimo and Lori were offered an alternative and more “legitimate” means of getting her daughter into the school, but they “rejected it.”
Page Six revealed today that both parties were offered an alternative way of getting Isabella and Olivia Jade into the University of Southern California, but they said no, and chose an illicit strategy instead. Prosecutors told the jury additional details of the case today.
Back in 2016, the prosecutors began, the 56-year-old Giannulli was offered to “flag” Isabella’s college application file, court documents stated on Tuesday. On the 27th of September, 2016, Mossimo wrote in an email to the college admissions officer, “I think we are squared away,” and then forwarded the same email to his wife.
Mossimo wrote in the forwarded email to his wife that he had never shut someone down in such a polite way. According to the prosecutors, universities often use donations as a way of influencing the college admissions process; it’s perfectly legal.
However, the prosecutors claim Lori and Mossimo rejected this approach when Isabella was trying to get into the school four years ago in 2016. Moreover, federal court documents detailed how the celebrity couple started working with Wiliam Singer in the summer of 2015.
By April of 2016, Lori and Mossimo figured out a strategy to get their daughter into the University of Southern California. Emails obtained by prosecutors show that Rick recommended them to get pictures and photographs of Isabella looking like an athlete.
Followers of the case know that part of the scheme was to recruit Isabella and Olivia Jade into the university as crew team recruits. Furthermore, the couple sent $200,000 to Rick Singer through his fraudulent charity.
As it was previously reported, both Mossimo and Lori have been slapped with serious charges in the college admissions case, which saw the conviction of Felicity Huffman as well. Huffman served just a two-week prison sentence earlier in 2019. If convicted, Loughlin and Mossimo may have to serve 20 years in federal prison.
