The U.S attorney in Boston said on Thursday; that former Edge of Night and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy charges in connection with the college admissions scandal at the University of Southern California.

The couple will plead guilty before a U.S. District Court Judge on a date to be set.  The pre-hearing will take place Friday at 11:30AM EST via video conference.

Loughlin and Giannulli have been accused of paying “bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their offspring designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC,” according to the indictment.

The couple were two of more than 30 parents in the country implicated in the admissions scandal, which included former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, who plead guilty for her wrong-doing last year and served a 14-day prison sentence.

In terms of what is next for the couple. according to Deadline, Loughlin’s plea agreement calls for two months in prison, a $150,000 fine and two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service.  Giannulli’s agreement calls for five months in prison, a $250,000 fine and two years of supervised release with 250 hours of community service.

In a statement U.S. Attorney Andrew E. Lelling said, “Under the plea agreements filed today, these defendants will serve prison terms reflecting their respective roles in a conspiracy to corrupt the college admissions process and which are consistent with prior sentences in this case. We will continue to pursue accountability for undermining the integrity of college admissions.”

So, what do you think of the Louglin and Giannulli’s guilty plea? What do you think of the prison time, fines, and service they will reportedly have to serve for their sentence in connection to this scandal? Is it appropriate for their crimes?  Comment below.

I hope these two do time, on arrogance and smugness alone. She has shown absolutely no remorse. And her kids, such narcissists and so entitled. She should be ashamed of herself and her children.

Maybe because it’s her private life. I was surprised though that this site did not report the death of her son.

I do hope she is feeling better.

No, they should be sentenced as though they came from no money. If they weren’t rich and not celebrities I’m sure it would have been much harsher sentence. 2 months is laughable.

If they weren’t rich, they probably would not be in the position they are right now. I don’t personally know many people who could make a $500K “donation” to get their children into college.

This is big news since it was said over and over again on the news that the couple was facing YEARS in prison. I guess it is true that money does talk when it comes to the justice system. If you shell out enough dough, all you’ll get is a slap on the wrist for crimes committed.

They should have gotten more time.
