Actress Lori Loughlin, her husband and 14 other parents ensnared in a massive college entrance scam were hit with additional charges on Tuesday, including a count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, federal officials said.
A new superseding indictment unsealed Tuesday alleges that Loughlin and her husband, the fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, disguised their bribes to the ringleader of the scam as donations to fund programs for “disadvantaged youth.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The new charges came a day after federal prosecutors said actress Felicity Huffman and 13 other defendants charged in the probe dubbed “Operation Varsity Blues” had agreed to plead guilty.
Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, have already been indicted on a federal charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, a crime that could get them each a maximum 20-year prison sentence if convicted.
