Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were indicted on fraud and money laundering charges Tuesday in the multimillion-dollar college admissions cheating scam that has ensnared dozens of wealthy parents trying to get their kids into the nation’s most prestigious colleges.
The “Fuller House” star and her husband, along with 14 other parents, were charged in Boston in a “second superseding indictment with conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering,” the Department of Justice said in a statement to Fox News.
