Full House star Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, and 14 other parents were hit Tuesday with a new money laundering charge in the sweeping college admissions bribery scheme.
Loughlin’s career and the Hallmark Channel were deeply intertwined. She’s been among its so-called “Christmas queens” who topline a slate of popular holiday movies, and also starred in the ongoing Garage Sale Mysteries movies and the series When Calls the Heart. The move came after a federal investigation of a college admissions scam involving more than 30 parents, many of them prominent, was revealed Tuesday
One actress is accused of paying to facilitate cheating on a daughter’s SAT, while the other is accused of bribing a university official twice, once for each daughter.
The NCAA says it will look into claims made against college coaches and administrators in a college admissions bribery scandal. Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were among more than 50 people charged Tuesday in a scheme in which wealthy parents bribed college coaches and other insiders to get their children into some of the most elite schools in the country, federal prosecutors said.
