It is looking more likely that the offspring of the alliterate actress are going to be witnesses for the prosecution.

I still think if a deal doesn’t get done, they might be indicted to force the deal to get done.

Lori Loughlin’s new defense hope? USC didn’t get daughters’ rowing photos, report says

As Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli prepare their defense to charges that they bribed their daughters way into the University of Southern California, the couple have received information that they apparently hope will boost their case that they are innocent.

It is that USC never received the notorious photos the couple allegedly took of their daughters, Olivia Jade, 20, and Isabella Giannulli, 21, posing on rowing machines, TMZ reported.

College admissions consultant William “Rick” Singer, who pleaded guilty to masterminding the alleged bribery scheme, requested the photos in 2016 and 2017, the indictment alleges. He said he needed them to create athletic profiles of the sisters that would falsely present them as crew team recruits in their application packets.

“Prosecutors have made a huge deal of the fact Olivia Jade and Isabella were photographed on a rowing machine, saying it’s proof Lori and husband Mossimo Giannulli defrauded the university,” TMZ said.

But from the TMZ report, it’s not clear exactly what the significance is that USC didn’t receive the photos.

Perhaps it means that the falsified photos were never used to help convince USC officials to admit the sisters, somehow lessening Loughlin and Giannulli’s culpability.

But the prosecutors’ complaint shows that they have other evidence. It includes recorded phone conversations and emails between Singer and the former “Full House” actress, and between Singer and Giannulli, a fashion designer. In the phone calls and emails, they discussed the need for the photos and that the payments — totaling $500,000 — would be used to bribe USC officials.

Lawyers for Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 56, who each face up to 45 years in prison, filed documents in December in which they said the couple would establish innocence by showing that they understood the payments to be “legitimate donations” — not bribes.

“They did not understand or intend that (the) payments would be used to directly or indirectly bribe” Donna Heinel, the former USC senior associate athletic director, the attorneys said.- Source

Olivia Jade Doesn’t Think Her Parents’ Legal Troubles Are Her Fault, Inside Sources Say

Olivia Jade is the daughter of Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, who are both currently wrapped up in the massive college admissions scandal. Even though her parents have been accused of cheating to get her and her sister, Bella, into college by falsely presenting them as rowing crew recruits, Olivia doesn’t think that she should be blamed for their legal troubles, inside sources say, according to InTouch.

Olivia has faced a lot of backlash ever since the news of the scandal broke. She was previously a successful YouTuber with big name brand deals with beauty products. She has since lost the brand deals and the respect of some of her fans. But she doesn’t believe she should be blamed for this whole mess.

“The way Olivia sees it, she didn’t ask her mom to get involved in the admissions scandal. It’s not her fault. She’s just trying to get on with things and build a career for herself,” an inside source said.

As The Inquisitr previously reported, Olivia has publicly tried to restart her career as a YouTuber in recent weeks. She posted a four minute video to the platform after being notably silent for months. In the video, the former beauty guru and lifestyle vlogger said she couldn’t discuss any of the legal issues going on with her parents. However, she did say she wanted to start making videos again. It almost seemed as if she was asking her viewers for permission to return. – Source
