Lori and 11 other parents were given new criminal charges of conspiracy to commit federal program bribery by prosecutors.
According to the LA Times, the couple was previously warned by prosecutors that they would face additional charges if they didn’t plead guilty.
But, they are clearly still fighting since they pleaded NOT GUILTY. For the record, Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty to her own charges and ended up serving less than two weeks (though her charges were much much lighter than Lori’s).
