‘Full House’ actress Lori Loughlin was indicted, Tuesday, and could face years in prison connected to her role in the college admissions scandal.
The Boston Globe has more:
Loughlin and her spouse, the fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, and 14 other wealthy parents were charged in US District Court in Boston in “a second superseding indictment with conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering,” US Attorney Andrew E. Lelling’s office said.
Loughlin, who is best known for her roles on “Full House,” “Fuller House,” and “90210,” and the other defendants had all been previously charged only with conspiracy to commit fraud. The addition of the money laundering charges raises the legal risk for the parents.
The parents allegedly paid bribes to have their children falsely designated as athletic recruits at elite colleges and universities, or to facilitate cheating on their children’s SAT and ACT exams.
The parents allegedly made payments to a charity and company set up by the ringleader of the scheme, William “Rick” Singer.
