And now the poor excuse from Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo who are now claiming that they had no idea college bribery mastermind Rick Singer was going to grease the palm of a USC coach.
Read on to get the latest on Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo…
CelebNMusic247.com reports that Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli didn’t take a plea early on because they believe they have a solid defense on several fronts.
Well, here is why they might be alright despite facing 40-years in prison. Both Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli state they were unaware of ringleader Rick Singer tactics. They are saying that Singer did not tell them how he would use the $500k to get their daughters into the school.
They also admit that they aware Rick Singer wanted pics of the girls on a rowing machine, but they say that doesn’t mean they knew the end game.
NOT really believe that, but here is what else they are saying.
What we are hearing is that Lori and Mossimo’s lawyers are making two elements key in their defense, “knowledge and intent.” The celebrity couple says that their only intent is to generally get their daughters into USC by using a “facilitator” who got hundreds of other students into colleges.
There is one problem if they didn’t know about ringleader Rick Singer bribery tactics the explain why Mossimo sent $100k directly to the assistant athletic director.
Someone is lying!
Over the years, prestigious colleges have horse-traded with relatives of prospective students for decades … e.g., fund the wing of a school building and your child will miraculously get accepted. It’s not only been tolerated by many schools … it’s aggressively encouraged by some of the schools, and parents know it.
This is a whole other thing, and Lori and Mossimo would have been better off donating $500K to a new building or wing at the school instead of working with Singer. Lesson learned.
The former USC assistant coach is expected to plead guilty to criminal charges in connection with the scandal. The former coach, Laura Janke, allegedly made it appear Olivia Jade was on the rowing team.
