Lori Loughlin & Mossimo Giannulli are ‘nervous’ about being sentenced today

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are going to be sentenced today. Previously, they had only worked out a plea deal with federal prosecutors, all part of Operation Varsity Blues, and dozens of parents scheming and scamming their kids’ way into college. Lori and Mossimo were two of the worst offenders, and they were also two of the parents who refused a plea deal the longest. Lori was still running to People Magazine on a weekly basis to simper about how faith-based she is up until the point where she just accepted the plea offer. And now a judge has to formalize it:

Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are set to be sentenced Friday for their role in the widespread college-admissions scandal, bringing their made-for-TV saga to a close. The celebrity couple will appear via videoconference in Boston federal court, where US District Judge Nathaniel Gorton will decide whether to accept a plea deal the duo struck with prosecutors in May.

They admitted to paying $500,000 to scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer in order to get daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose accepted into the school as crew recruits — even though neither girl was a rower. Under their plea agreement, Loughlin, 55, would be sentenced to two months behind bars, while Giannulli, 56, would get five months. She’s also agreed to pay a $150,000 fine and perform 100 hours of community service. Her husband would pay a $250,000 fine with 250 hours of community service.

Unlike most plea agreements — where the judge is free to decide on the sentence — the couples’ proposed prison terms are binding if the deal is accepted. If the judge doesn’t accept the terms, the whole deal would be void.

Loughlin was “feeling nervous” on Thursday, ahead of her sentencing, though also ready for the ordeal to end, a source told Us Weekly. She and her hubby are “anxious,” but “looking forward to closing this chapter of their lives,” the source said. Unlike other prominent parents charged in the scheme, they also did not submit letters expressing their regret or notes of support from family and friends to the court.

That’s funny that they didn’t submit notes of support OR express regret. Felicity Huffman was a wreck when she pleaded guilty and she submitted tons of letters of support. I wonder if Lori’s friends have mostly abandoned her. Maybe for her “notes of support,” she can just submit all of those stupid People Magazine covers she organized to fluff up her image.

Meanwhile, the sentencing is happening in the same week that additional details have come out about Olivia Jade’s complicity in the fraud. Olivia was CC’d on at least one email between her parents and Rick Singer, and she was coached on what to say (and what not to say) to her high school college counsellor so he wouldn’t catch on to the fraud. Which… I mean, we always knew that Olivia Jade and the other daughter were actively involved in the fraud. They were lying their asses off and posing for fake rowing photos and all of that. The news here is that prosecutors totally knew that Olivia was in it up to her eyeballs.

    I don’t know if it was so bad they didn’t submit letters of support. Having read several that were submitted for other cases, not sure they helped much. Most were so overwrought and came across as disingenuous, as well as being written by a bunch of PR people.

  2. Lori says:

    I kinda wish they hd to pay more money or set up scholarships for deserving families or something. A couple of months served isn’t enough

  3. minx says:

    This should be interesting.

    • Lady D says:

      Fingers crossed. I saw justice once this year when Weinstein was sentenced. I want to see it one more time.

      • Athyrmose says:

        Also want some for Breonna.

      • Lady D says:

        My apologies. Breonna does deserve justice, so do George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery. Both those men died terrifying deaths. I just can’t imagine being Ahmaud and being hunted like that. One of those pricks hit him with his truck to keep him in the circle to be shot by the the intrepid daddy/son scum. It’s one thing to die, we all do it, but to die in such terror? So fundamentally wrong.

      • Athyrmose says:

        No apology necessary! I’m just keeping her on everyone’s mind when discussions turn to justice. 😉

  4. WilliamJoelene says:

    Good I hope they go dowwwwn. I don’t think the daughter can be complicit even though she took part. She was pretty much a young person directed to by her parents. It’s they who are responsible. Her fault is she’s young.

    • Mercury says:

      It’s amazing how white children are viewed as young and innocent when black children are seen as thugs and treated as adults.

      • Lady D says:

        Trayvon Martin shot to death at 15 for wearing a hoodie.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        and apparently, these privileged white kids aren’t supposed to know right from wrong either.

      • Anna says:

        BIPOC children rotting in prison for so much less and often for nothing at all #LivingWhileBlack

      • josephine says:

        This times a million. There are so, so many incidents of this, like newspapers consistently using arrest photos for young people of color arrested but school/graduation photos for white kids arrested. And judges often remark about the “promise” of young, white defendanst when sentencing them lightly.

        This young woman had every privilege in the world, no doubt a top education, and she still shouldn’t be held accountable if she was under 18 when it happened. When do we extend the same privilege to young people of color, some of whom come from less means, which often compounds being young and thus not yet fully responsible?

    • Lizzie says:

      Disagree, the daughers turned in fruadulent collage applications. They could have turned in accurate applications at other schools. I said below the younger even financially benefited shooting you tube videos at the school. Both daughers benefited, they should also be in jail for a few months.

  5. FHMom says:

    I hope they get the book thrown at them. The slots they took could have gone to deserving, hard-working students who were actually planning to use their degree to, you know, work for a living.

  6. Chelle says:

    I beat they try to do house arrest because of COVID.

    • Darla says:

      Yeah I think the judge will accept the deal and neither will see the inside of a cell because of covid

  7. KellyRyan says:

    Whatever the time sentenced is it won’t be long enough. I do hope they have years of community service ahead. Filmed picking up trash on college campus’s. :)

  8. Sab says:

    They are getting 5 months

  9. ArniePz says:

    She’s extra nervous because she’s going up the river and Olivia Jade can’t even row her there.

  10. Lightpurple says:

    Boston Globe is reporting that he is getting five months in prison.
    They are still waiting for her sentencing.

  11. Lori says:

    Ok so he got 5 months plus fines etc. Waiting for hers

    • pottymouth pup says:

      and yet a Black man that’s been sitting in a Louisiana jail for the past 23 years after the state supreme court denied his appeal of the life sentence he received for *checks notes* attempting to steal garden shears

  12. olliesmom says:

    I’m hoping that one of her fellow inmates pulls her hair.

  13. ClaireB says:

    I was watching this case gleefully for a while, but since the world is literally on fire, I just can’t care as much. They’re rich and white, so they probably won’t actually serve any of the time, won’t have to make up for their crimes, and Trump will probably pardon them.

  14. Sorella says:

    Totally white priviledge. I hope they both serve the full time they get. And $250,000 is nothing for them.

    But the real question is will they ALL make a comeback AFTER all this. There will be the apology tour, maybe a book etc. and may be some will fall for the “any parent would do this for their children if they could” line. But can she truly go back to acting, how can she play sugar-sweet roles now which is her whole persona now??! . And the daughter Olivia, she needs to fade away to a non-public life and so something more productive with her life. So vapid and uneducated and fashion “influencers” are a dime a dozen, pretty girls are everywhere, go away spoiled girl. and work on your brain. But alas, they all love attention. I hope people don’t give her or her parents a comeback in the public eye

  15. MarcelMarcel says:

    It’s an exercise in privilege & stupidity cuz there’s legal ways to buy college admission. Could they not afford to pay for a new library wing or sports centre? Or they did just cheap out and thus doom themselves to public shaming?
    Either way, I wonder if there’ll be a ten part Netflix series. “Greedy Education- The Rise and Fall of a mediocre wealthy family in Hollywood”.

  16. Lizzie says:

    They were stupid when they could have just made a huge donation and been above board, so I think a few months is fair. However those daughters commited fraud and I have been very disapponted they were not charged. The daughters were the ones who benefited so they should have a heavier sentance than the parents. The younger daughter said she didn’t want to go, yet she did and used the collage as part of her brand for you tube videos. So she also financially profited from the fraud.

  17. Gutterflower says:

    TWO MONTHS. She got 2 months!!!! Ugh
