Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli's long-awaited trial date for her role in the national college admissions scandal is coming up on January 17 in a Boston courthouse.

The idea, which was presented to Lori by her lawyer, and has not been well received by Mossimo, it is revealed that he is "not happy about it."

A source tells US Weekly, she hired the consultant because she wants to show that she is taking the case seriously by keeping all options open and preparing herself for the worst outcome.

A source told PEOPLE, while Lori is hopeful, but she is seeking the advice of a prison consultant because she is a planner, and the rules in prison are different to life in Hollywood, it is revealed:

"She needs to keep a low profile if she's incarcerated…She wants to understand what the experience will be like, and how to not only survive it, but flourish in it…Table manners are different; social interactions are different."

It is reported, Lori and Mossimo are hoping to prove that Rick duped them into believing that the money was going to his charity, Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF), for USC donations.

According to PEOPLE, In court documents by their attorney Sean Berkowitz, he has accused prosecutors of holding back vital evidence in the form of FBI recordings from Rick that could prove the couple was unaware that their money would be used as a bribe for their daughter's college admission.
