The former Full House star is among eleven parents who were just slapped with additional charges for their role in the college admission scandal. CNN just reported that the actress was indicted with the conspiracy to commit federal program bribery, which means that they bribed a university that received federal funding.
With these new charges, Lori could face up to five additional years in prison on top of the potential forty that they might face if convicted. Lori and her husband Mossimo paid more the 500 thousand to get their two daughters into the university of southern California.
Allegedly, prosecutors were not happy with Felicity Huffman walking away on such light charges and they believe that Loughlin could get a similar punishment if she is convicted.
New sources have revealed that Lori and her husband are not taking the new charges well and feel like it might break them. Lori stated, “how do you go up against the federal government when they have decided to make an example out of you”. Allegedly someone close to the family stated that the whole family is in chaos right now because they could have charged her with all of this last fall but waited until now, it seems like they are using her as a scapegoat.
