They pleaded not guilty for their involvement in the college admissions bribery scandal.
The actress and the businessman were arrested in March for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud after allegedly paying half a million dollars to guarantee the admission of their daughters, into the University of Southern California as elected crew team recruits, even though neither of them had played the sport.
Loughlin’s friends are also worried about Giannulli’s intentions “Everyone feels bad for her. They think the situation was something concocted by her husband,” explained the source. “Her friends don’t like him,” reported Us Weekly.

Later, the couple received another charge, this time for money laundering, just days after rejecting a plea deal, which included a two-year prison sentence. They both pleaded not guilty to the charges against them on April 15.
Loughlin is beginning to understand the gravity of the situation, and that according to another source for Us Weekly, “is in denial and doesn’t believe she should have to spend any time in prison.” adding that Loughlin would rather “go to trial before being separated from her family and take those odds rather than just go to prison as part of a deal.”
The daughters, Bella and Olivia are still technically enrolled in the acclaimed university, although they are not physically present due to fear of bullying. Nevertheless, Olivia has been outspoken about her lack of interest in school via her YouTube channel, which has almost 2 million subscribers.
“The girls never went to class. It was all appearances,” reported Us Weekly. “They would take classes that didn’t have traditional final exams in which they would submit a paper, or do a presentation. The girls had help with their classes and had notes given to them from classes,” adding that, while Olivia and Loughlin both desire “attention” and “want to be in the spotlight,” Bella “is much calmer” and “was only trying to please her parents.”
Olivia lost several brand deals in the scam’s aftermath, however, she doesn’t want to delete her Instagram account like her older sister did, “She is hoping that the scandal will pass and she will be able to resume promoting her brand.”
To make things worse, Olivia Jade, who was the reason for Loughlin and Giannulli’s legal problems, was spotted partying with other YouTube stars in Studio City, California, According to Fox.
TMZ reported that Jade was laughing and dancing at the party while her student status in USC is still on hold. The college said it will be examining the students involved in the scandal on a case-by-case basis.
“USC determined which applicants in the current admissions cycle are connected to the alleged scheme and they will be denied admission. A case-by-case review of current students who may be connected to the alleged scheme is also underway. We will make informed decisions about those cases as the reviews are completed,” the college wrote on its website.
