    Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannulli indicted on fraud and money laundering charges in college admissions scandal

    Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were indicted on fraud and money laundering charges Tuesday in a multimillion-dollar college admissions cheating scam that has ensnared dozens of wealthy parents trying to get their kids into prestigious colleges.

    The "Fuller House" star and her husband, along with 14 other parents, were charged in Boston Tuesday in a "second superseding indictment with conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering," the Department of Justice told Fox News.


    Loughlin and Giannulli were charged last month with conspiracy to commit mail fraud. The new indictment on Tuesday adds a money laundering charge to all 16 defendants.

    FELICITY HUFFMAN TO PLEAD GUILTY IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SCANDAL: 'I AM ASHAMED OF THE PAIN I HAVE CAUSED'

    Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as crew team recruits, even though neither of them played the sport.

    A rep for Loughlin did not immediately return Fox News' request for comment. They appeared in Boston federal court briefly last week and were not asked to enter a plea. The couple has not publicly commented on the allegations.

    More than four dozen people have been charged in the nationwide scam, which is alleged to have placed students in top-tier schools like Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, the University of Southern California, UCLA and the University of Texas. A federal investigation into the matter – dubbed "Operation Varsity Blues" – has been ongoing for more than a year.

    The move comes a day after fellow actress Felicity Huffman, 12 other parents and a coach agreed to plead guilty — signaling an escalation in the case against the parents who are continuing to fight the allegations against them.

    What in the world happened when these kids had no skills to do the things they said they could do??
    I mean just walk into a room of soccer players and start "acting" like a manager??
    Egads! That sounds like a worse nightmare than not being admitted.
    Bunch of spoiled, entitled brats...old and young.
