Lori Loughlin and the 18 other parents who did not enter guilty pleas in the college admissions scandal have been hit with a superseding indictment. As you may remember, actress Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty yesterday and will likely end up with a much lighter sentence.
Those who didn't plea are now charged with both mail fraud and money laundering, charges which each carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison
Lori and her husband, designer Mossimo Gianulli, could also be facing fines of over $1 million after the payments they made were categorized as charitable donations.
Loughlin and her husband agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team, even though neither ever rowed.
So shady...but 40 years? These are federal sentencing guidelines so we'll have to see if the couple gets anywhere near that.
