Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband pleaded guilty Friday to charges of fraud in the college admissions scandal, admitting they scammed their daughters’ way into the University of Southern California with lies and illegal payments.

But the case against Loughlin and her husband, J. Mossimo Giannulli, remained unsettled after the judge in the case put off a decision on whether to accept the couple’s guilty pleas and the terms of deals they struck with prosecutors.

The couple had initially pleaded not guilty to the fraud charges. Officials say they have agreed to a plea deal of prison time, a fine and community

BOSTON (Reuters) - "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin and her husband will appear by video on Friday to plead guilty to participating in a vast U.S. college admissions fraud scheme to secure spots for their daughters at the University of Southern California.

Under those deals, Loughlin would spend two months in prison and Giannulli would be sentenced to five months behind bars.

Nonetheless, the court hearing Friday, held remotely over a video conference, marked a sharp about-face for the couple. Since their arrests more than a year ago, Loughlin and Giannulli had maintained their innocence, repeatedly pleading not guilty as prosecutors ratcheted up pressure on them with enhanced charges, including conspiracy to commit fraud, bribery and money laundering.

US college admissions scandal : how did the scheme work and who was charged? The justice department said Loughlin agreed to serve two months in prison and Giannulli agreed to serve five months in prison under their respective plea agreements filed in federal court in Boston.

Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli requested the court enter a plea of not guilty to each charge against them in the college admissions scandal , according to a federal court filing entered Monday.

Before they said a somber “guilty” under oath Friday, the television star and fashion designer acknowledged what they had long denied: that they schemed with William “Rick” Singer, a Newport Beach consultant at the heart of the scandal, to pass off their two daughters, Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli, as rowing recruits — a scam that cleared the way for the girls’ admission to the elite university.

Seated next to their attorneys, Loughlin and Giannulli listened with stony expressions as assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen read an exhaustive account of their dealings with Singer, including how they paid him a total of $500,000, took staged photographs of the girls on rowing equipment to bolster the charade of their athletic prowess, and lied to administrators at USC and the girls’ tony private high school who had grown suspicious.

Afterward, under questioning from U.S. District Court Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton, Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 56, acknowledged the allegations laid out by the prosecutor were true.

A change of course. After months spent at proclaiming his innocence , Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have decided to plead guilty to the charges against them.

Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have taken a generous plea deal which will see them serve just two and five months respectively in prison for taking part in a college bribery scheme to get their daughters into school.

From his chambers in a Boston courthouse, Gorton said he would wait to decide whether to accept the guilty pleas until he received detailed reports on the case and the couple from probation officials. If he ultimately decides that the prison sentences, community service and six-figure fines called for in the plea agreements are too lenient, Gorton said he would give the pair the chance to withdraw their guilty pleas or stick with them and accept the judge’s more severe punishments.

Sentencing is set for Aug. 21. It was not clear if the judge would decide on whether to sign off on the plea deals before then.

There are reasons to think he could have concerns with the proposed punishments. Gorton has already sentenced four other parents in the wide-ranging scandal and the shortest sentence has been five months for a mother who paid Singer far less money than Loughlin and Giannulli.

Gorton also ordered Douglas Hodge, a former investment manager executive, to serve nine months in prison, the stiffest sentence handed down in the scandal so far.

The decision by Loughlin and Giannulli to plead guilty came after the couple lost an ambitious legal counterattack earlier this year. They and other parents charged in the case argued that Gorton should dismiss the case or at least toss out incriminating recorded phone calls after notes taken by Singer came to light in which he appeared to claim federal agents pressured him to lie and elicit incriminating yet false evidence against his clients. Gorton opted to do neither.

Singer, who has pleaded guilty to multiple felonies, has been cooperating with investigators since they confronted him in 2018 after getting a tip about his dealings. In all, prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office for Massachusetts have charged more than 50 parents, coaches, college administrators and others who allegedly participated in Singer’s scheme that targeted wealthy, unscrupulous families desperate to see their children get into USC, Yale, Stanford and other elite universities where Singer had made inroads.

While he ran a legitimate college admission consulting business, Singer offered a menu of illicit services to parents willing to overstep ethical and legal lines. For a fee that ran from about $15,000 to $75,000, Singer arranged to have an accomplice take a teen’s college entrance exam or correct their errors. For about $250,000, parents could access what Singer called the “side door” he had built into schools, in which he essentially paid off coaches and athletic administrators for admission spots reserved for athletic recruits.

Many of the accused have pleaded guilty, while about 20 who have persisted in their innocence are slated to go to trial in proceedings scheduled to start later this year and early next year.

On Friday, prosecutors announced that yet another parent had been charged in the case and has agreed to plead guilty. Under the terms of a plea deal, Peter Dameris, 60, of Pacific Palisades, will plead guilty to using $300,000 in bribery payments to sneak his son into Georgetown University as a bogus tennis player.

While all the parents in the case came from rarefied, privileged circles of one sort or another, the sheen of fame and glamour on Loughlin and Giannulli led to outsized fascination — and ire — from the public.

In April 2019, Loughlin’s fans and detractors lined the sidewalk outside the federal courthouse in Boston where she made her initial appearance. Since then, supermarket tabloids, citing unnamed sources said to be close to the actress, offered near-weekly updates on her state of mind, her relationship with her daughters and other salacious, unfounded rumors.
