Despite being hit with another indictment for money laundering and facing an additional 20 years in prison (instead of just 2), Lori Loughlin and her her husband Mossimo Giannulli are not budging. The couple reportedly are “not ready” to enter a plea for their alleged role in the college admissions scandal.
“They are not ready to make a plea like Felicity [Huffman] and go down that road. They are hoping to just let this play out in the judicial system. They are innocent until proven guilty,” says a source to CNN. “They wish the media would just leave them alone. They feel like there is no story and don’t understand why the press keep hounding them and following Lori to yoga.”
Another source tells PEOPLE, “From the beginning, she didn’t want to take a deal, because she felt that she hadn’t done anything that any mom wouldn’t have done, if they had the means to do so. So this wasn’t her being obstinate; this was her truly not understanding the seriousness of the allegations.”
In other related news, Lori Loughlin’s Hallmark show When Calls the Heart is set to return on May 5th. As expected, Lori has been edited out of the remaining episodes after some “highly creative editing” and a few reshoots were done with the cast.
The episodes have reportedly been "re-edited in such a manner that removes any appearances by Loughlin" https://t.co/0MiXQecIX4— Vulture (@vulture) April 10, 2019
