Lori Loughlin is in seriously deep waters with the law. $1,000,000 deep- to be exact.
Lori Loughlin, star of the mega-popular Full House, is facing major jail time for felony charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
On March 13th, the once adored TV wife and mom was accused of a college admissions scandal which featured a $500,000 admissions plea to feature her daughter and an A-list college’s rowing team. Lori, along with several other parents, took part in an admissions scam that allegedly invested more than $25,000,000 to colleges in agreement for their children to be guaranteed spots on the school’s rosters for sports and admissions.
According to ABC, Lori, 54, “was arrested in Los Angeles after an overnight flight from Canada, where she had reportedly been filming. Loughlin, who faces a felony charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, is expected to appear in court later this afternoon.”
PEOPLE states that court documents allege that Loughlin and her husband Giannulli, “agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in the crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC.”
After her arrest on March 13th, Loughlin attended court where the judge “set the actress’ bail at $1 million—with allowances to travel throughout the United States and in the Canadian province of British Columbia, where she has several upcoming projects to shoot—Judge Kim pushed back.” Her project, which are in process and should be wrapped up by November 2019, will mark the end of her passport ownership. The judge charged her to surrender her passport in December 2019.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI, the indictment claims that the actresses and other parents allegedly schemed to helped their children gain acceptance to top schools by helping them cheat on college exams.
