Skip to comments.Lori Loughlin and Husband 'Didn't Realize That What They Were Doing Was Illegal': Source
Posted on 04/25/2019 1:59:05 AM PDT by Libloather
Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli didnt fully grasp that their alleged bribery in the college admissions scandal was illegal, a source familiar with the case tells PEOPLE.
You read the complaint and they look like criminal masterminds, the source tells PEOPLE. But they really didnt know the legalities of what was going on. Theyre not lawyers and theyre not experts. They were parents who simply wanted to make sure that their daughters got into a good school.
Calling in favors, donating money to the alumni association, hiring consultants. Those are all things that parents do, says the source. And so they gave money to this consultant, not entirely knowing everything that was going to be done. When it all fell apart, nobody was as surprised as they were that they were in trouble.

I would go with that.
then why aren’t they pleading guilty?
I dont blame them either.
The racist strategy for admissions allows really stupid to advance on qualities having nothing to do with merit
Because they’re such good people, or at least that’s the image they’re so desperately flailing at maintaining.
Their problem was that they weren’t taxed enough, and therefore...they had all this money burning a hole in their pocket. So why not dispose of it via the college ‘gimmick’?
Ignorance of the law is no excuse, neither is it a defense in a court of law.
the common folks cannot do it , but isn’t this what people who can afford it do for their children? /s
But they did know it was wrong....shady
I do. They knew their daughters werent USC material ....or any other college
They also knew they werent atheletes
Heheh. Tell it to the judge.
Mossimo Giannulli seems to be worth 10s of millions and married Lori Loughlin from Full House.
Aren’t there legal ways he could have gotten the girls into school which look a lot like the illegal way? /s
How were they going to make it 4 years and earn a diploma?
Another note, See
not all designers are gay.
The explanation at sentencing might have helped if they were apologetic and had plead guilty to the most generous offer...
Instead she was indignant and out on the court house steps signing autographs on their court date... so I say she gets what she gets, including all the other charges they were going to overlook added back in.
How can it be a crime if you didn’t know it was illegal?
When I donate to my local church they always ask for pictures of my kids playing sports they don’t engage in. So I believe them (LOL)
Playing to potential jurors. Hoping for an OJ verdict.
White women benefit from the same policies, and they were fixing this for daughters - not sons.
Remember, they think they are our superiors and that they must never be prosecuted for illegal activities. They will use every excuse in the book including ignorance. Expect a counter accusation soon or projecting blame onto someone else like the school for ‘tricking’ them or maybe a lawyer for providing bad council.
Leftists are horrible people.
Probably. The college they picked was local and convenient to them Im guessing so they picked the easy bribery route which no doubt is common in the social group they mix with. What they and we the great unwashed observers are surprised about is that anyone was charged with this. Someone had an axe to grind to get an unenforced law suddenly enforced.
