Lori Loughlin is having a nervous breakdown over her possible prison sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal.
We gave you an update on how Felicity Huffman was doing as she was serving time for community service for The Teen Center; now we'll provide an update with Ms. Loughlin who isn't handling this matter very well.
Loughlin and Huffman were the two actresses that were among many of the participants involved in the college admissions scandal.
Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, are awaiting trial for their role in the college admissions scandal. It is unclear at this time if both of them will face a prison sentence.
Lori Loughlin and Her Husband Facing Justice
A source told Entertainment Tonight that Lori is "terrified" at the thought of facing prison time if she is found guilty.
"She is breaking down," the source said. "She truly feels at her very worst. People are coming out in support of her lately but she is afraid to open up. She's concerned if she talks to the wrong people that her opinions will get out and somehow affect the case."
According to PopCulture.com, Loughlin and Giannulli were indicted earlier this year for allegedly paying $500,000 to have their two daughters designated as crew recruits at the University of Southern California despite the fact that neither of them rowed crew.
The two did not accept a plea deal and were charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering and conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
They May be Guilty As Charged
Speculations surrounding the case is that Lori and her husband may be found "guilty as charged" and will have to face the consequences of prison time. They await their day in court so we'll see how it all pans out. They pleaded "not guilty" in October— but were still charged with one count each of conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery.
"Lori has always been an upstanding citizen, a loving mother and a gracious, wonderful friend," the insider said. "Those closest to her are devastated because she has been a good person to them and know she could be facing jail time because of very poor judgement. Her friends are supporting her and keep reminding her if she does time behind bars she will get through this."
Loughlin's Daughters Support Their Mom
Loughlin and Giannulli's two daughters, 20-year-old Olivia Jade and 21-year-old Isabella Rose, are also reportedly sticking by their mom's side as Lori vows to fight the charges.
"They are trying to help her process but it’s been really hard," the source said. "The girls feel guilty because they realize she was only trying to help their future. They know their mother is a good person, and don't want her to suffer in any way."
It's unfortunate that Ms. Loughlin has to face these charges. We'll keep you posted as soon as we have updated information on this case.
