Lori Loughlin has officially pleaded not guilty to charges in connection to the college admission scandal, in which she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid half a million dollars to get their daughters into USC.
According to TMZ, Loughlin and Giannulli entered their plea via court documents to all charges, including conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and money laundering, which were added upon the couple’s decision to reject a deal. Now, as a result, the two are facing a maximum of 40 years behind bars.
Although a plea deal is still available for the two, sources tell the publication, both Loughlin and Giannulli are still facing a minimum of four years and nine months in prison even with the deal. In the meantime, fellow Hollywood actress, Felicity Huffman, has already accepted a plea deal and is now facing a minimum of four months in prison for paying $15k to rig her daughter’s SATs.
