CAREER CRASH

Loughlin and Giannulli may well see the presiding judge refuse the plea deal for considering the recommended sentence to be excessively lenient. If that is the case, the couple will have to choose between facing a trial that could end in a hefty prison sentence, or accept the judge's ruling.

Loughlin has seen her career take a nosedive after the scandal erupted. She was dropped by Hallmark from their hit series "When Calls the Heart" in which she played Abigail Stanton.
