Lori Loughlin Charged With Money Laundering
Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have been charged with money laundering in addition to fraud in the college admissions cheating scandal.
Loughlin and Giannulli were charged in the case along with actress Felicity Huffman and dozens of other parents who allegedly cheated the system to get their kids into colleges.
The money laundering charge comes from the parents in this case who paid to get their kids into schools through a fake charity. This carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. Same goes for the fraud charge- also a maximum of 20 years in prison.
Prosecutors say it's unlikely Aunt Becky will be sentenced to 40 years in prison, but they want all of the parents involved in the scandal to get some jail time.
An expert recently told People he thinks Loughlin will get 3-5 years, while Felicity Huffman, who pleaded guilty on Monday, will probably get less than a year.
