In her pending trial in the high-profile college admission case, Lori Loughlin plans for every possible outcome— including how life will look if she ends up serving prison time.
“She has a person who tells her if she loses her case and goes to jail,” says a source close to the actress.
Loughlin, 55, faces a prison sentence of up to 45 years for her alleged scandal involvement.
According to their lawsuit, Rick Singer (and his non-profit company, Key Worldwide Foundation) allegedly paid 500,000 $to admission consultant Rick Singer to illegally appoint daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli, aged 20, as applicants for the crew of the University of South California, but not even current daughters.
Authorities say that the family also took pictures of the girls of the rushing machinery.
Besides money laundering, mail and wire fraud conspiracy, and truthful mail and wire fraud charge, Loughlin and Giannulli were given an additional federal charge last October: one count of conspiracy to commit the bribery of federal programs. We did not plead guilty to all charges.
The source close Loughlin maintains that she will protect herself vigorously. Last month the couple filed a motion arguing that their contributions were not intended to be used as bribes. They say Singer has hoodwinked them.
The pair watched other prominent cases closely in this scandal and found that many defendants who pleaded guilty still had to spend time in prison.
Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded not guilty to allegedly paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters into a sports team from the University of Southern California. However, they did not take part in the sport either.
