Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli's Not-Guilty Pleas Were Practically Inevitable

Together, they are among the most high-profile parents ensnared in the largest-ever college-admissions prosecution—she an actress known to millions as Aunt Becky from Full House and Abigail Stanton from Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart ; he of Target’s Mossimo, the brand responsible for dressing so many Americans through, gosh, so many stages of life.

As you well know, if you’ve managed to find this article, Loughlin and Giannulli stand accused of paying $500,000 to falsely pass off their two daughters as crew recruits in order to secure spots at the University of Southern California.

Loughlin’s choices in this matter, at least, are being judged against Felicity Huffman’s, the other actress who played a lovable mom on TV, for better or for worse, and Huffman is among the 13 parents who took the prosecutor’s plea deal, which will likely come with the “low end” of recommended prison time .

She paid $15,000 to raise her daughter’s SAT score by about 400 points, a less elaborate and expensive crime than Loughlin and Giannulli’s.

When compared to Huffman’s moves in the case so far, Loughlin and Giannulli’s actions have looked almost reckless.

Loughlin has not commented, nor has her representation, but she has remained upbeat in public, wearing a smile, saying polite platitudes, and signing autographs for fans outside of the courthouse in Boston.
