Lori Loughlin‘s chances at skating in the college admissions scandal have gotten much better.
According to People magazine, “explosive evidence” has come to light that could help exonerate her and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli.
Attorney Sean Berkowitz recently filed a motion to have the couple’s trial date postponed because newly released information claims that scam mastermind Rick Singer was told by the FBI “to lie by saying that he told his clients…that their payments were bribes, rather than legitimate donations that went to the schools.”
Lori and Mossimo, who are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters into USC, have insisted that they thought they were making legitimate donations to the school.
Criminal defense lawyer James J. Leonard Junior tells People, “This is a defense attorney’s dream and a prosecutor’s nightmare. This changes everything.”
The judge denied the delay request and set their court date for October 5th.
- Maybe Felicity Huffman should have fought the charges.
- If Lori doesn’t get jail time, how angry will Huffman be?
- It still feels a bit suspicious to donate half a million dollars before your kids get into the school.
