Earlier this month, a source told Us Weekly that Lori's attorneys were confident that the charges would be dismissed as prosecutors withheld vital evidence about the lies Rick Singer – the mastermind of the operation – was pressured to tell the actress.

CBS revealed that legal analyst Jennifer Roman stated that while Lori could recover from the scandal when a person gets a "plea of guilty, it's a slam dunk. Trials are never a slam dunk."

As it turned out, Lori isn't the first celebrity to be charged with admissions fraud as BBC News divulged back in September 2019 that Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to help improve her daughter's SAT scores.

As for how Lori and her husband have been dealing with the scandal, People previously reported that they put their multi-million-dollar mansion up for sale, in January. However, sources claimed that the couple's intent to sell their home had nothing to do with the drama surrounding them.

Lori and Mossimo previously used the property as collateral for the $2 million bail they paid for the fraud charges last year.
