Lori Loughlin Will Likely Surrender To Police, Following Husband’s Arrest
TV fans are still shocked at charges against actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, who allegedly paid bribes to get their children into Ivy League colleges.
According to TMZ, Lori is expected to surrender this week. Best known for her portrayal of Aunt Becky on the sitcom Full House, the actress was shooting in Vancouver when FBI agents turned up at her Los Angeles home on Tuesday.
Officers arrested her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, and made arrangements for Lori to surrender when she returns to the city today. Mossimo was later released after posting a $1 million bond.
According to reports, Lori and Mossimo paid $500,000 to college fixer William “Rick” Singer so their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, would gain admission to USC as competitive rowing recruits — even though the girls weren’t athletes.
Lori deleted her social media accounts as soon as the news broke, and her influencer daughter, Olivia Jade, was roasted on social media for once bragging about cashing in on her college status and admitting she didn’t “really care about school,” reports Page Six.
Both Mossimo and Lori are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, and could serve prison time if convicted.
