Lori Loughlin’s New Claim in College Admissions Case Could Change Everything

It’s been nearly a year since Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were first charged in the college admissions scandal.

Now, the Full House star is fighting back in court with new evidence that could help her case.

According to People magazine, “the couple’s attorney Sean Berkowitz filed a motion to have to their upcoming trial date postponed due to newly released claims that scam mastermind Rick Singer was told by the FBI to lie about whether parents knew they were paying bribes.”

In court docs, Sean states that Rick’s notes indicate that “FBI agents yelled at him and instructed him to lie by saying that he told his clients who participated in the alleged ‘side door’ scheme that their payments were bribes, rather than legitimate donations that went to the schools.”

Last year, the couple pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud, money laundering and conspiracy to commit federal program bribery.

They were accused of paying Rick $500,000 to designate their daughters as recruits to the USC crew team, though neither of their girls ever rowed.

“This is a defense attorney’s dream and a prosecutor’s nightmare,” criminal defense lawyer James J. Leonard Jr. told People magazine about the new claims. “This changes everything.”

Perhaps this is exactly the change Lori was praying for. We shall see!
