Mossimo Giannulli gets 5 months in prison in college admissions scam. Lori Loughlin will be sentenced later today – CNN No ratings yet.

Written by on August 21, 2020

During the sentencing Friday, District Court Judge Nathaniel Gorton addressed Giannulli, telling the defendant he was convicted of a crime “motivated by hubris.”

“You certainly did know better and you helped sponsor a breathtaking fraud on our system of education and involved your wife and your two daughters in cheating and faking their way into a prestigious university,” Gorton said. “You were not stealing bread to feed your family. You have no excuse for your crime. And that makes it all the more blameworthy.”

“He engaged more frequently with Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally
confronted his daughter’s high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter’s athletic abilities,” wrote US Attorney Andrew Lelling of Massachusetts in the detention memo released on Tuesday.
“Loughlin took a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit, eagerly
enlisting Singer a second time for her younger daughter, and coaching her daughter not to ‘say too much’ to her high school’s legitimate college counselor, lest he catch on to their fraud.”

Because of the type of plea agreement that Loughlin, Giannulli and prosecutors entered into, the judge will have very little wiggle room to veer off the agreed-upon deal. Loughlin is expected to be sentenced in the afternoon.

“The case went south on the prosecutors,” said CNN legal analyst Elie Honig, who
referenced exculpatory evidence that Loughlin’s defense attorneys argued proved that she and Giannulli thought they were donating to a legitimate business. “Those documents were potentially devastating to the prosecution’s case and massively reduced the prosecutors’ chance at getting a conviction at trial.”
Word of the evidence came to light in December, when Loughlin and Giannulli’s lawyers argued that iPhone notes from Singer’s mobile device allege that FBI agents spoke aggressively to him about his recorded calls with defendants, and
they alleged investigatory misconduct. They also argued that prosecutors had not handed over this evidence quickly enough, only eight months before an October trial, and that they did not have enough time to prepare.
