Lori Loughlin Is Putting Her Daughters At Risk Of Being Charged For College Admissions Scandal, Says Federal Prosecutor

Date October 31, 2019 15:59

Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to a scam mastermind in order to get their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella into the University of Southern California's crew team even though neither of the girls row.

It was reported that the couple, along with nine other parents, were also indicted on charges linked to bribery. Sources told Fox News that Lori and Mossimo are feeling the heat as it seems the federal government is trying to make an example out of them.

Will Lori Loughlin's daughters be charged too?

Former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani recently told People that Lori's daughters are at risk of being charged amid their parents' legal battle.

Rahmani explained that 20-year-old Olivia and 21-year-old Isabella may, at the very least, be witnesses in the trial against their parents who have since refused to plead guilty to the charges brought against them.

The legal expert stated that the government intends to continue putting pressure on the family.

By not pleading, Lori and Mossimo are exposing their children to being charged.

A source speaking on behalf of the Loughlin family disagrees with Rahmani's words. The insider explained that Lori will never intentionally put her girls at risk.

If Lori had any indication that the girls were at risk, she’d want to plead guilty — even though she believes that she did nothing wrong.

The source said that Lori won't let her children be jailed over something they didn't do and that the actress is a "fantastic mother" who is willing to take the fall for her girls if need be.

Reactions

A number of people have shared their opinion on the possibility of Olivia and Isabella getting charged for the college crime.

Some feel that the girls are not as innocent as they are being portrayed to be and should pay the price of participating in the fraud.

Lori Loughlin and her husband obviously have an uphill climb in their battle against the charges that are being brought against them. At this point, no one can hazard a guess at how things will play out. Only time will tell.
