Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli agree to plead guilty in college admissions scam

Source: CNN

Actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli have agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy charges in connection with their role in the college admissions scam, the US Attorney's Office in the District of Massachusetts said.

Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 56, had been accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as fake crew team recruits. They had pleaded not guilty and moved to dismiss charges as recently as two weeks ago.

As part of the plea agreement, Loughlin will be sentenced to two months in prison and Giannulli will be sentenced to five months in prison, subject to the court's approval, according to authorities.

5. So smug, those two...

I remember parents like those when my kids were in high school. The thing is everybody - the kids, teachers, other parents - could see they thought they were above the "little people" and didn't have to play by the rules like the rest of us.

6. No wonder they took this plea

They were originally looking at 15 years in federal prison for this.

8. I'm agreeing with others on the first post about this--not ONE day in jail because of CV

Funny how they decided just to plea instead of fighting it all the way. Nah...their mouthpiece told them CV is their ticket to never step foot in a lock up.

Their beautiful lifestyle and loads of cash shouldn't be under the threat of catching CV in a **GASP** Prison! Nope,home lock up with a bracelet which means they could still go out to the pool.

9. They're putting their mansion on the market too

I wonder how much they've spent on legal fees. Perhaps it's time for their bratty daughters to leave the nest.

11. Disregard the "months in jail"

With CV, it'll most likely be a perp walk in cuffs followed by house arrest.

Both of their brands are damaged, but the public has a short memory. Onc this is behind her for a year, will Hallmark (or a similar cable outlet) welcome Aunt Becky back?

The college admissions system is already weighted toward the wealthy. SAT/ACT prep courses; admissions essay coaches; tutors; accessibility to summer programs that enhance the academic standing. The only thing shocking to me about this story is that they couldn't have just gotten the kids into USC through the time-honored method of handing the school half a million bucks.
