  Emails reveal that the children of Loughlin and Giannulli were flagged by their high school counselors who said they knew the two were not on the crew team. The school "doesn't think either of the students are serious crew participants," a USC employee wrote in an email, according to the Times. Criminal defense attorney and legal analyst Alexandra Kazarian said the release of these exchanges complicates the case."The question is, is the government presenting this as a conspiracy where everyone was in on this together in order to defraud someone else," she said.

Loughlin and Giannulli are among 15 parents still fighting charges in the blockbuster "Varsity Blues" admissions scandal. U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton has made clear he wants to divide the parents into smaller groups rather than have them tried all at once.

Prosecutors have suggested two different proposals – one that would involve two separate trials and another that would involve even smaller groups of defendants and three separate trials. In both proposals in the memorandum, the government included Loughlin and Giannulli in the first trial suggested for October.

"The government believes that these groupings, which contemplate that spouses who have been charged together are tried together, will facilitate the efficient presentation of evidence based on the specific conduct in which each of the defendants engaged and the nature of the witnesses and evidence against them," Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen wrote in the memo.

Actress Lori Loughlin and others are facing additional charges for their alleged role in the college admissions scandal , the Justice Department announced.

Rosen also hinted that more parents could choose to plead guilty in deals with prosecutors before trial.

"The government believes that it is likely that additional defendants will enter into agreements to resolve the charges prior to trial," Rosen wrote. "For that reason, the government believes it may be possible to try those defendants who wish to exercise their right to a trial in no more than two trials."

If the court settles on two trials, prosecutors have proposed the celebrity couple be tried with Gamal Abdelaziz, I-Hsin “Joey” Chen, Elisabeth Kimmel, William McGlashan Jr. and Homayoun Zadeh – other parents who have pleaded not guilty to charges in the nationwide admissions scheme.

A second trial would take place in early 2021, under the government's proposal, and a third would take place in the late spring of 2021 if needed.
