Lori Loughlin Reportedly Thinks Rejecting a Guilty Plea Was the ‘Right Thing’ Amid Bribery Case
Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli are highly convinced they did the right thing by not pleading guilty and spending time in jail, believing they will be acquitted in the upcoming trial regarding the college admission scam.
Lori Loughlin is a tough one when it comes to fighting for the ongoing college admissions scandal case. She and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who are both charged with money laundering and conspiracy, believe they won’t be convicted in their upcoming trial.
“[Lori] still believes she did the right thing by rejecting a guilty plea,” a source told People. “She is a fighter.”
The “Fuller House” actress has had rough past months, trying to keep her marriage together, but the source says the couple is trying to work as a team to get through this legal case.
“Lori, in particular, has become well-versed in the case.” the insider said. “She’s an active participant in her own defense, feels like she’s got a valid defense, and that when all the evidence comes out, she won’t be found guilty.”
The couple allegedly paid a hefty $500,000 bribe to scammer William “Rick” Singer for their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, to get into the University of Southern California (USC) through being an athlete, despite it not being true.
Although Loughlin only wanted the best for her daughters, the girls are finding difficulty in coming to terms with what their parents did. Weeks ago, Olivia Jade stopped listening to her parents and hasn’t forgiven them.
However, it was reported that Olivia was well aware of what her parents were doing to get her into a university. A source told Us Weekly:
“Olivia fully knew what her parents did to get her into USC, but didn’t think there was anything wrong with it. She didn’t get into any other California schools.”
