Getty Images Lori Loughlin pleads not guilty in college admissions scam

Lori Loughlin’s Show “When Calls The Heart” Renewed For Another Season Amid Her Firing

The couple are accused of allegedly paying $500,000 as a bribe to the University of Southern California crew coach to secure their daughters admission to the school.

According to documents obtained by CBS News, Loughlin and Giannulli each waived their right to appear in court for an arraignment and pleaded not guilty to each of the charges brought against them.

Loughlin became known for her role as Aunt Becky in the television sitcom "Full House".

(Paul Marotta/Getty Images) Felicity Huffman exits the John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse after appearing in Federal Court to answer charges stemming from college admissions scandal, April 3, 2019, in Boston.

Huffman has agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, saying, "I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions".

Authorities say Loughlin and Giannulli helped create fake athletic profiles for their daughters by sending Singer photos of their teens posing on rowing machines.

Prosecutors added a money laundering charge against Loughlin, Giannulli and a dozen other parents who are still fighting in the case.

The accusations have hampered the careers of Loughlin and her daughter Olivia Jade, a social media influencer.

Each of the charges Loughlin and Giannulli face call for up to 20 years in prison, although first-time offenders would get only a small fraction of that if convicted.

On March 12, the U.S. Attorney's Office in MA announced that it had charged 50 people, including Loughlin and fellow actress Felicity Huffman, in the cheating scandal. So that is something that has understandably made her less likely to enter a plea, ' the unnamed person told People.

"She is very concerned about what a guilty plea would do to her daughters, who may not have grasped everything that was going on."
