Lori thinks she’s better than the people. She thought they would never put her in jail.
My over under for Lori is around six months jailtime, but with a very large fine — maybe matching the $500K she spent on bribes — and lengthy probation and community service which will take years to work through.
I’m thinking Lori would look good in prison orange. But that’s all based on the outfit...
I wonder if she’ll have one of the 70’s and 80’s style prisoner’s outfits - you know with the halter top and exposed midriff? Just like in the cheap B-grade movies.
Of course, I haven’t seen any of those movies. I’m just going off what others have said about them...
I’m not saying - I’m just saying, that’s all...
I hope she is convicted by the jury and the judge sentences her to the maximum on each count to be served consecutively. I hope the old hag becomes a very old hag in prison.
She rolled the dice.
I figure that they will want to make an example out of her and her husband. I would guess between 1 and 5 years and not at club fed.
I have been wondering about the school officials that took the bribes. Nobody talks about them. Anybody know if they are going to get penalized or do they just resign or get fired and go to another school and do the same thing and keep taking bribes?
She may be acquitted. Dont despair Lori.
There was a very pretty blond woman that was to “Pretty To Be Put In Prison”. This was the judges call. I believe this was in the mid 90’s. May be she will have the same fate.
This whole thing is stupid.
I don’t believe they committed a crime.
They tried to get their dumb children into college and no one got hurt.
You know what they say: in for a penny, in for a pound.
I fail to see the issue. Colleges, for reasons we all know, take in unqualified students by the THOUSANDS (maybe millions) and with that, they bump out better qualified people. So she and others did the same - what’s the big deal?
A jury won’t convict. She’ll beat the rap.
what a country.
Lori still doesn’t get it. She’s playing cards even now.
She has not even yet expressed remorse as did her counterpart, Huffman.
No, Lori is still trying to wriggle free of her stupidity and bad legal advice and out of her “Not Guilty” plea, But, only after seeing the lenient outcome of Huffman’s trial.
Even if she didn’t mean it, Huffman accepted responsibility and issued remorse to get the plea deal, and certainly had the more cunning lawyers to guide her responses to the charges.
Life is hard. It is harder when you are stupid. Everybody told her shut up and take the deal.
The trial tax. Dare to exercise your right to actually go to trial by jury and risk a penalty that is hundreds of times more severe than somebody who cops a plea for the same crime.
Should’ve listened to them high priced lawyers
Privilege isn’t a crime. Greasing someone’s palm for access to something happens all the time. Her crime was stupidity, but driven by good intentions—helping her kid up the ladder to a good life. True, she doesn’t seem to have done a great job raising the kid, but that’s not a crime either. Had she stolen the money for the bribe it would be different; but it was her money.
The coach is the one who needs to go down. Maybe she can buy herself some immunity by helping to put him away.
I can’t understand why they always go after the one who’s already been burned in cases like this: paying off politicians or black-mailers. Rarely it seems, are the ones profiting from the arrangement getting any attention.
