Things just got a tad worse for Full House actress Lori Loughlin and her husband J. Mossimo Giannulli, as the two have received an additional charge as part of their involvement in the highly publicized college bribery scandal.
According to People magazine, Loughlin and Giannulli are two of 16 parents that have now been charged ‘in a superseding indictment by a federal grand jury in Boston on fraud and money laundering charges.’ The additional charge came down on Tuesday (April 9) from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts. This is in addition to the charges stemming from ‘conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud.’
Loughlin was arrested on March 13 and got free after posting a $1 million bond for allegedly paying $500,000 to get her daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose into college as a recruit for their school’s crew team.
And no, neither one ever has rowed much of anything.
“The charge of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud provides for a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of $250,000 or twice the gross gain or loss, whichever is greater,” according to the statement. “The charge of conspiracy to commit money laundering provides for a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of $500,000 or twice the value of the property involved in the money laundering.”
An arraignment date for the couple has not been set.
