US actress Lori Loughlin and her husband will appear by video on Friday to plead guilty to participating in a vast U.S. college admissions fraud scheme to secure spots for their daughters at the University of Southern California.
The Full House actress and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, have agreed to serve two months and five months in prison, respectively, under plea agreements that are subject to approval by a federal judge in Boston.
They are expected to appear before the judge during a hearing conducted through the Zoom videoconferencing platform due to restrictions on in-court proceedings amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Loughlin and Giannulli agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and to pay fines of $150,000 and $250,000 respectively.
