Lori Loughlin pushed her influencer daughters to step up their studies while plotting to bribe their way into college as fake athletic recruits, prosecutors claim in new court documents.
The “Full House” TV actress “was in charge and told the couple’s daughters that they needed to do better in high school,” prosecutors wrote in a letter, according to USA Today.
Loughlin, 55, and her designer hubby, Mossimo Giannulli, 56, are accused of paying crooked college fixer Rick Singer $500,000 to get their daughters, Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade, into the University of Southern California as rowing recruits. The girls had never participated in crew.
The information was revealed in documents recounting what Singer told the FBI about Loughlin and Giannulli’s roles in the nationwide college admissions scandal, the report said.
Lawyers for the couple requested that the government hand over the FBI’s witness interviews in advance of the trial next year.
Loughlin and her husband have pleaded not guilty to charges of money laundering, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit bribery.
