Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband have been hit with additional bribery charges linked to the U.S. college admissions scandal.
The couple and other parents linked to the scam have been charged with conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery for allegedly paying $500,000 to help their children get into elite colleges.
Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli’s alleged actions helped land their two daughters places at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
The Fuller House star and her husband are already facing charges of wire fraud and money laundering. They have pleaded not guilty.
Some of the parents involved in the scandal have already been sentenced – actress Felicity Huffman is currently serving jail time for fraud and conspiracy after she paid an admissions fixer $15,000 to help her eldest daughter gain access to top schools.
