Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin Appear in Court for College Admissions Scandal
Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, appeared in a Boston federal court Wednesday (April 03, 2019) afternoon on allegations they paid bribes to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California.
Loughlin and Giannulli sat next to each other with their lawyers as the judge asked them if they understood their rights. They were not asked to enter a plea. Neither they nor their attorneys have publicly addressed the charges against them.
Fellow actress Felicity Huffman also appeared in court for a hearing on her alleged role in the national college admissions scandal. The star was accompanied by her brother to the courthouse.[irp posts=8992]
Huffman, who may face tax penalties in addition to criminal charges, did not speak other than to respond to a series of yes or no questions by the judge during the brief hearing. She was not asked to enter a plea. Neither Huffman nor her lawyers have publicly addressed the allegations.
Loughlin was looking downright bubbly as she arrived at the courthouse. She signed autographs for fans on her way in.
One person who witnessed this whole thing go down said Lori was “chatty.” And one superfan named Robert Schepis said she was “super friendly.” He explained, “She came over and she goes, ‘Guys, thanks for being such good fans. Oh my god, I love RAD. Thank you so much for waiting for me.'”
He also said that, she was about to go in, and my friend was like, ‘Can we get photos with you?’ and she was like, ‘Of course!'”
