Full House star facing 40 years in prison

Lori is among 33 parents involved in the nationwide college admissions cheating scam.  The actress reportedly paid $500,000 to get daughter Olivia Jade into an elite college.

Even after she was released on $1 million bail her situation is not looking good.

According to the US Attorney's Office for the District of Massachusetts, the Full House actress and her husband, Giannuli are now facing up to 40 years in prison and over one-million dollars in fines after the payments they made to allegedly bribe officials were categorized as charitable donations.

Showing love to Lori

The 62-year-old actor during his appearance on Today morning show on Tuesday to promote his movie Benjamin, said he is not qualified to speak on the legal aspects of the scandal.

Addressing the controversy, Saget explained:

I think I'm underqualified. Well, uh, we go by carrier pigeon, but I will say that I love her, and I will say... no comment. It's a personal thing. It's a strange time and what do you say?

Lori and her husband earlier this month both pleaded not guilty to the charges brought against them.

This is what people had to say

@finnbinbabybox

He could have at least expressed disappointment.

@vwear

Very respectful ❤️

@playitlb

Even though he said no comment I commend him for not getting involved in this mess

@kelliekomisarcik5

Come on Bob, you couldn't think of anything better to say than "no comment"?! Please. 🙄🙄

If you were in Bob's position would you share your thoughts on the college admissions cheating scam?
