Lori Loughlin Looking To Avoid Jail Time Completely In College Admissions Scandal Case
According to a report from Page Six, Lori Loughlin has full awareness of the fact that in order for her to stay out of prison, she has to completely beat all the charges against her in a court of law. The report claims Lori is committed to coming out victorious.
A source who spoke with People Magazine claimed Loughlin is going into a court of law to prove she's not guilty with the charges she's been hit with. The same insider said to the outlet, "she's scared and upset," adding that Lori is going to fight it.
The difference between Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin is that Felicity pled guilty to the charges, whereas Lori Loughlin did not. Huffman was given just a two-week prison sentence, however, Lori's charges are a lot more extensive and severe.
The insider who spoke with the outlet went on to say that Lori is very hopeful of the fact the courts and prosecution will deal with the case fairly, and not "make an example out of her."
As it was mentioned in passing above, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have pleaded not guilty in the college admissions scandal. Reportedly, their charges have a maximum penalty of forty years in prison.
Lori and her husband are accused of paying half a million dollars to the admissions scam runner, William "Rick" Singer, in order to get their daughters Olivia and Isabella into the school as recruits for the school's crew team, despite not even playing the sport.
On the other hand, Huffman only paid $15,000 bribe and quickly admitted she was guilty, which was part of the reason why she wasn't punished as severely.
Olivia Jade Giannulli, however, is reportedly defiant in the same way as her mother, even going against the attorney's demands and posting a picture of herself giving the middle finger to the media. Olivia was also affected by the scandal after Sephora and other brands she had worked with dropped their partnership.
