Lori Loughlin Reportedly Thinks She’ll ‘Return to Work’ despite Possible Jail Time
Amid college scandal, Hollywood actress, Lori Loughlin is hopeful of bouncing back to her job as an entertainer.
With the ongoing court case, the former “When the Heart Calls” actress grows more conviction that the accusations levied against her would be discharged.
Back in April, the 54-year-old actress and her designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli pleaded not guilty to the charges of mail and wire fraud as well as money laundering.
A source revealed that:
“Lori reads everything that’s written about her and it’s killing her that her squeaky-clean reputation has done a total 180, She thinks she’s not going to serve jail time and [will] return to work.”
In March, news came out that the “Full House” Star and her 55-year-old spouse were allegedly involved in a college scam including dozens of others as they tried getting their daughters, Olivia Jade, 19 and Bella, 20 into the University of Southern California.
The couple was said to have paid a whopping sum of $500,000 as a bribe to William Singer to have their girls recruited into the university’s crew team even though Lori’s daughters were not into sports.
As it is, Lori Loughlin and daughter Olivia Jade have a strained relationship as the teenager moved out of her parents home. A source close to the family disclosed that:
“Olivia Jade is totally over it and won’t listen to anything her parents say now. She is in no way ready to forgive anything her parents have done.”
Loughlin on her part is devastated by the accusations and thinks that she doesn’t deserve the ordeal or jail term. The source also revealed that:
"While the fact she could serve time never leaves her mind, she strongly believes she doesn’t deserve to. She truly feels it was all a misunderstanding”
The insider also shared views on the situation, stating that:
“Lori’s situation has gone from bad to worse. Jail time has always been a possibility, but since more charges were filed her reality [of not serving time] seems grim.”
The source also expressed Olivia's displeasure saying that the scandal would have never happened if Lori had agreed to her choice of not going to college.
"Lori doesn’t understand Olivia’s reaction. She seems to feel her act was selfless and misunderstood and she wants to prove she had all the best intentions and even that she was, in some way, duped into breaking the law.”
Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are facing a jail term of up to 40 years if found guilty and convicted.
