Lori Loughlin and Husband Enter Guilty Pleas — But Judge Says He Can't Accept Them Yet

More than a year after rejecting a plea deal from federal prosecutors, actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, appeared before a federal judge via video conference Friday to plead guilty to charges stemming from the college admissions cheating scandal.

However, the judge said he couldn't accept the pleas until he sees their pre-sentencing reports from the Massachusetts Probation Service.

Loughlin, 55, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud while Giannulli, 56, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud.

The couple were the 23rd and 24th parents to admit guilt in the college admissions scandal. During Friday's hearing, Loughlin rocked side-to-side, occasionally speaking with her lawyer and looking out the window.

One of the first was actress Felicity Huffman, 57.

Under the terms of the plea agreements, Loughlin will serve two months behind bars and Giannulli agreed to serve five months. The judge scheduled the sentencing hearing for the couple for Aug. 21.

In addition, Loughlin was ordered to pay a $150,000 fine and was placed on two years of supervised release with 100 hours of community service.




Prosecutors said Key Worldwide Foundation was actually a front for accepting bribes; Singer admitted his role as the ringleader of the scam and pleaded guilty to multiple charges.

Both daughters are supportive of their parents' decision, after initially fearing they would end up serving years in prison, a source tells PEOPLE.

News of Loughlin and Giannulli's plea deals broke Thursday morning. Ever since their arrests back in early March 2019, the couple had maintained their innocence.

They were among 50 people charged by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Massachusetts, which investigated the college admissions scandal and handled the prosecutions

Bruce Willis Finally Reunites With Wife Emma Heming

Reunited and it feels so good!

While many are continuing to social distance amid the coronavirus pandemic, there was no more distance between Bruce Willisand his wife of over a decade, Emma Heming, after reuniting seemingly this week. Over on Heming’s Instagram, the model and mom shared videos and photos of her with her famous husband and their two daughters together, including Heming and Willis taking a ride on an ATV and the star pushing his daughter on a swing. Judging by the posts, the family appeared to be somewhere rural as they were surrounded by trees and at one point near what looked like a creek. 

If you haven’t been keeping up with Willis family as of late, the blockbuster star made headlines early last month when it was confirmed he was social distancing with his ex-wife Demi Moore and their daughters in Idaho. 

The sighting naturally spurred questions as to why Willis was not isolating with his current wife, who remained in Los Angeles at the time. 

Luckily for curious fans, his daughter Scout Willis later gave an explanation.

She revealed on the Dopey podcast that Heming was going to come with their kids, but one of their daughters accidentally poked her foot with a needle she found in a park. So, Heming stayed in Los Angeles to get test results from the doctor while Willis went to Idaho early. Then, “travel got crazy,” Scout said, so Heming ended up staying in Los Angeles with their daughters. 

While it’s unclear where the couple is together now, the reunion certainly looks sweet—and came just in time for their daughter Evelyn‘s 6th birthday.
