Lori Loughlin Pleads Not Guilty In The 'Varsity Blues' College Admission Scam, "She Plans To Fight"

April 16, 2019

This move comes roughly one month after the Varsity Blues scandal broke.

According to E! News, "the actress pleaded not guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering."

In another E! News article, a source opened up about her decision to plead not guilty. "Lori really believes she isn't guilty and that any parent would have done the same thing that she did if they were in that position...She plans to fight this and for her girls. She can't imagine what will happen to them if she goes to jail."

Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli are charged with paying bribes to get their daughters picked as recruits for the USC crew team. Neither daughter actually rowed for the team despite the fact they had created fake athletic profiles to get recruited.

The actress really seems to believe that she has valid points and that her actions are dismissible. "She's rolling the dice and thinks that she has a strong defense."

Time will tell if that defense is capable of holding up.
