Lori Loughlin Reportedly Rejected a Plea Deal Because She Thought the D.A. Was ‘Bluffing’

There’s a good chance Lori Loughlin is kicking herself right now.

On Tuesday, the Full House actress was hit with new charges for her participation in the nationwide college admissions bribery scheme. Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were among the 16 parents who were charged with money laundering and conspiring to commit mail fraud, each of which hold a maximum 20-year prison sentence.

According to E! News, Loughlin could’ve avoided the additional charges had she accepted a plea agreement that would’ve resulted in a much softer punishment. Sources said federal prosecutors offered her a deal that would’ve required her to serve about two years behind bars; however, Loughlin reportedly rejected the deal because she was convinced the D.A. was bluffing.

Whoops.

“She has been in complete denial and thought maybe she could skate by,” the source told E! News. “She refused to accept any jail time and thought the D.A. was bluffing. She was adamant she wouldn’t do any jail time.”

The source continued: “Lori is finally realizing just how serious this is. She is seeing the light that she will do jail time and is freaking out.”

Last month, Loughlin and Giannulli were arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. The parents allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes to ensure their two daughters were designated as crew team recruits so that they were guaranteed admission to the University of Southern California.

Loughlin’s daughters Isabella Rose and influencer Olivia Jade will reportedly not return to USC.
