Full House’s Lori Loughlin and her husband are now facing charges in the college admissions scandal. They were among around 50 people to be indicted.
On Tuesday, the Department of Justice said that Loughlin and 10 others accused in the scandal would have additional charges. A jury in the District of Massachusetts brought the case against 11 of the 15 parents involved. Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were involved in the appeal.
The changes say that the people conspired to commit bribery by paying the University of Southern California employees to ensure their children’s admissions. The employees “designated the defendants’ children as athletic recruits — with little or no regard for their athletic abilities — or as members of other favored admissions categories.”
US attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Andrew Lelling, said that these charges “are the result of ongoing investigation in the nationwide college admissions case.”
He added, “Our goal from the beginning has been to hold the defendants fully accountable for corrupting the college admissions process through cheating, bribery and fraud. The superseding indictments will further that effort.”
Loughlin and the other parents have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them. The charges against them accuse them of paying $500,000 for their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli to get admission into college.
USC revealed that both Olivia and Isabella had had their admissions terminated, but did not comment further due to student privacy.
