Lori Loughlin, husband Mossimo Giannulli plead not guilty in college scam

Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to two conspiracy charges in the college admissions scandal, according to federal court filings entered Monday. Loughlin and Giannulli are now facing charges of conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

"[The prosecutors] are saying that the only way anyone's going to escape jail time is if they go to trial and are found not guilty", the source told PEOPLE.

Nearly two weeks after their last court stint in Boston, the couple have also waived their right to appear in court for an arraignment on the matter. You can see the form at The Blast.

Loughlin and Giannulli were indicted for allegedly paying bribes totaling $500,000 to have both of their children - including 20-year-old Isabella Rose - recruited for the USC crew team, despite not playing the sport. Prosecutors have said they will seek between 33 to 41 months in prison for Mark Riddell, a Harvard graduate oversaw college entrance exam preparation at IMG Academy.

They haven't publicly addressed the allegations against them. "Even the man who masterminded the whole thing plead guilty".

Loughlin and Giannulli reportedly were slapped with an additional charge of money laundering after rejecting a plea deal.

Brexit WARNING: May could delay Brexit until 2020 - 'Cap in hand!'
As such, a negotiation to get a majority of MPs behind the Brexit deal won't be easy, even if there is now more time. May came to the summit in Brussels seeking a delay to June 30.

Last week, Huffman - as well as 12 other parents - agreed to plead guilty.

The Fuller House actress' indictment in the college admissions scandal finally got the full SNL treatment this weekend. Other prominent parents were indicted on similar charges.

Authorities say Loughlin and Giannulli helped create fake athletic profiles for their daughters by sending Singer photos of their teens posing on rowing machines.

Additionally, Huffman, and her husband, actor William H. Macy, have been accused of making a "charitable contribution" of $15,000 to participate in a cheating scheme on behalf of their eldest daughter, paying for her to be given twice the amount of time to take the SATs compared to other students. In exchange for the guilty plea, prosecutors said they will recommend incarceration at the "low end" of the sentencing range and will not bring further charges against her.

Furthermore, the feds say they have recorded phone calls from Loughlin and Huffman talking about the alleged scheme with a witness who was cooperating with investigators.
