Lori Loughlin: Want to Pay $2 Million to Get Out of Jail Time

Lori Loughlin is due back in court next week for a hearing about her role in the college admissions scandal.

She pleaded not guilty in April but has recently had a change of heart. Lori told her lawyers she’s prepared to negotiate with federal prosecutors. She could change her plea to guilty if they’d allow her to avoid prison time.

A source told Us Weekly, “Lori would accept home confinement with monitoring via a GPS ankle tag. She’s willing to pay a substantial fine — over $2 million.”

Loughlin paid half a million dollars to smooth the path for both daughters’ to enter University of Southern California. Now, she’s trying to buy her way a second time — to stay out of jail. Let’s see how that goes. (Us Weekly)

Hot Takes:

  • Highly doubtful Lori avoids jail. The Full House actress needs to spend time in the Big House.
  • A friend said the family has lived in the jail of public humiliation since the scandal broke.
  • In September, Felicity Huffman learns her sentence. She pleaded guilty to charges.
  • Production started this month with Penelope Ann Miller and Mia Kirshner in a Lifetime movie version of The College Admissions Scandal. (The Wrap)
