Actress Lori Loughlin and fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli are back in court today for a hearing in the college admissions scandal. Earlier this year, they pleaded not guilty to fraud and money laundering charges related to getting both of their daughters, Isabella and Olivia, into college. 

According to prosecutors, the famous couple paid $500,000 to get their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California. They also lied in the college application and claimed the girls were competitive rowers in high school.  

Fourteen out of the thirty-two parents involved in the college admissions scandal have plead not guilty to strike a plea deal, including actress Felicity Hoffman. Their sentencing will be revealed later next month. For now, Loughlin and Giannulli are on full defense mode and waived the right to separate attorneys. Instead, they’ll be represented by the same legal team to put forth a “united front,” sources revealed to People. If convicted, they could face up to 40 years in prison.

Her daughter, Instagram star Olivia, has her own thoughts on the matter. She recently posted a photo flicking off media outlets for all of the coverage. “#Close #Sources #Say,” was her caption to tagged publications. The response in her comments section was mostly positive with followers responding, “legend,” and “there she is!”
