According to a source close to actress Lori Loughlin, the Full House star would have done ‘anything’ to get her daughter’s into USC and she still doesn’t think she’s done anything wrong.
‘From the beginning, she didn’t want to take a deal, because she felt that she hadn’t done anything that any mom wouldn’t have done if they had the means to do so.’
After rejecting a plea deal, new charges were levied which means that Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli could face up to 40 years in prison for allegedly paying $500,000 to get her daughters into USC.
Why turn down the initial plea deal — that Felicity Huffman and other parents agreed to? Again with the sources…who say that they couldn’t for one minute believe that they might have to face jail time.
Welcome to the real world.
‘It’s just taking some time for it to sink in that what she was allegedly doing could be considered illegal,’ the source told People.
‘To her, it wasn’t egregious behavior. Was it entitled and perhaps selfish? Perhaps. But she didn’t see it as being a legal violation.
The source added: ‘From the beginning, she didn’t want to take a deal, because she felt that she hadn’t done anything that any mom wouldn’t have done, if they had the means to do so.
‘So this wasn’t her being obstinate; this was her truly not understanding the seriousness of the allegations.’
