Lori Loughlin intends to plead not guilty in college entrance scam

Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are going to trial over their roles in the college admissions scandal.

The couple and several other parents were originally charged with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.

According to reports, the Fuller House actress and fashion designer both waived their right to appear in court for an arraignment on the second superseding indictment. The couple are facing money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering charges for allegedly paying $500,000 to get their two daughters admitted to USC as members of the crew team, a sport in which they did not participate. "Loughlin and Giannulli did not appear in court and it is now not known if the judge will permit the pleas without them present". If convicted, they face up to 20 years in prison for each charge.

On April 8, federal prosecutors announced that Huffman was among 14 defendants who agreed to plead guilty in the scam that rocked elite schools, including the University of Southern California, UCLA, Georgetown, Yale, Stanford, the University of Texas, Wake Forest and the University of San Diego.

Leafs hoping to write a different script against Bruins heading into playoffs
Game 2 goes Saturday at TD Garden ahead of the series shifting to Scotiabank Arena on Monday and Wednesday. That was enough give the Leafs a 4-1 victory and momentarily halt any recurring playoff nightmares.

Now, Lori and Mossimo are allegedly "blaming each other" for the situation, but the good news is that their daughter Olivia Jade is reportedly no longer pissed at her parents for ruining her career/making her go to college in the first place (there is *ample* evidence that getting a higher education was not on OJ's priorities list).

Prosecutors have said they will seek a prison sentence on the low end of four to 10 months for Huffman, who was charged with paying $15,000 to boost her daughter's SAT score.

Singer has already pleaded guilty in a Boston federal court to charges of racketeering conspiracy, money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to defraud the United States and obstruction of justice.

"She probably should have taken the deal, but at the time, she didn't really realize how serious the charges were", the source tells PEOPLE. "It is not an easy ride".
