Truly important news here folks, much more so than COVID or Baker news.
|Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband have agreed to plead guilty and serve prison time in a college admission scandal that rocked higher education, prosecutors said Thursday.
In a plea deal with federal prosecutors in Boston, the "Full House" actress and husband Mossimo Giannulli agreed to serve time in prison for passing off their daughters as elite athletes and securing their admission to the University of Southern California, federal prosecutors in Boston said.
Loughlin has agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and Giannulli to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud, authorities said.
If a federal judge signs off on the deals, Loughlin will spend two months in prison, pay a $150,000 fine, be subjected to two years of supervised release and perform 100 hours of community service, prosecutors said. Giannulli agreed to five months in prison, a $250,000 fine, two years of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.
If they would have just pled guilty to start out with, they would have been over this by now like Felicity Hoffman. Instead, they kept their lawyers rich, kept their names in the news, and still came out having to do jail time.
And no, this isn't all that important really. Just thought it was a light change of subject from more pressing matters.
