Famous Hollywood star to plead over fraud allegation.


Full House actress Lori Loughlin and her husband have agreed to plead guilty to charges that they conspired to fraudulently secure their daughter’s college admission.

According to federal prosecutors, Lori and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli tried to bribe their daughter’s way into the University of Southern California.

Both of them have agreed to serve two months and five months in prison, respectively, under plea agreements filed in federal court in Boston.

They are expected to plead guilty on Friday to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Loughlin and Giannulli also agreed to pay fines of $150,000 and $250,000, respectively.
