Former Prosecutor Thinks Lori Loughlin Treats Her Serious Charges like a ‘Red Carpet Affair’
Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin continue their battle in court after getting caught in the college admission scandals, but while the former has already pleaded guilty, the latter has not.
It has recently been revealed that the "Full House" and "Fuller House" actress' name is not among the list of 14 defendants who agreed to enter guilty pleas.
According to Adam Citron, a former New York State prosecutor, the decision to not accept a deal may very well hurt her chances of getting a better one down the line.

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR MISTAKES
Citron claimed that, by accepting the deal, which "is in the zero to six range" in terms of months of possible jail time, the defendants are showing remorse for their actions.
It has been reported that most defendants have already made remorseful statements, including Huffman, who issued hers on Monday, April 8, 2019, accepting "full responsibility" for allegedly paying $15,000 to for a rigged college entrance exam.

However, Citron shared the possibility that Loughlin may not have been offered a deal yet, adding that she might have not been a part of the first round of defendants who cut deals.

POSSIBILITY WAITING FOR HER TURN
"They could be saying, ‘We’ll do these fifteen people this week and these people next week for interviews – or if they’re holding her to an offering not as beneficial with a higher jail sentence."

NOT VISIBLY BOTHERED BY THE WHOLE CASE
Loughlin and her husband, 55-year-old fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, have been found guilty of paying $500,000 in bribes to have their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, into the University of Southern California.

But despite risking spending some time in jail for fraud, Loughlin seems to be in very good spirits as of late considering that she was caught smiling and signing autographs on her way to her hotel in Beantown.
