Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli facing charges in a nationwide college admissions cheating scheme leave federal court in Boston

Loughlin and Giannulli said they are waiving their right to appear in Boston federal court for their arraignment and plead not guilty to the two charges against them. One person tweeted, "She must believe in the "celebrity defense" which has proven a great defense for many celebrities".

Lori Loughlin allegedly ran out of options.

The pair, as well as a dozen other parents, were indicted last week.

Meanwhile, Loughlin, along with her husband Mossimo Giannulli (the founder of Mossimo clothing), allegedly paid $500,000 to have their 2 daughters designated as recruits for the USC crew team, despite the fact that they did not actually participate in crew.

Each of the charges Loughlin and Giannulli faces call for up to 20 years in prison, although first-time offenders would get only a small fraction of that if convicted.

The charges include conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, while the scam reportedly involved money sent to a California businessman who promised to get applicants into the colleges of their choice. "So this wasn't her being obstinate; this was her truly not understanding the seriousness of the allegations". "She refused to accept any jail time and thought the prosecutor was bluffing". The source added, "Yes, she can think about the public perception of her, but that's nothing compared to what her daughters think of her". "While federal prisons" have the reputation for being like "a country club - hence the nickname "Club Fed" - they are still grim, grimy and uncomfortable", attorney Debra Bogaards of Bogaards Law in San Francisco told Yahoo.

Naturally, Prasad had to field the maximum questions on Pant's omission and the explanation was Tamil Nadu stumper's experience. The pace trio of Mohammed Shami , Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have also been included in the squad.

The actress Felicity Huffman was among 13 parents who pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit fraud last week.

The "Desperate Housewives" star released a statement after the acceptance of her not guilty plea. Those defendants, including actress Felicity Huffman of Los Angeles, are scheduled to appear for plea hearings next month in U.S. District Court in Boston. Their daughters have not returned to school since news broke.

The source goes on to emphasize that Lori didn't understand how serious her actions were. What in the hell? So the only choice they've got is to plead not guilty.

Singer has pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and other crimes and is cooperating in the case.

Elsewhere in the Lori Loughlin news sphere, the actress was spoofed on Saturday Night Live this past weekend.
