Lori Loughlin Regrets Not Pleading Guilty After Seeing Her Peers’ Sentences
This may have been a big mistake!
New reports are indicating that disgraced “Fuller House” actress Lori Loughlin is having second thoughts about her decision to plead not guilty in the college admissions scandal.
Fox News reported that sources say Loughlin “feels very much alone” as she prepares to go to trial. She is facing charges along with her husband Mossimo Giannulli for paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two daughters admitted to University of Southern California as part of the crew team even though neither had ever rowed.
“She is watching the reduced sentences of those who have taken plea deals, and wondering each day if she’s made the wrong decision,” the source said. “While a few friends have stuck by her side, many others have cut her off.”
“She still feels it’s a huge misunderstanding, but seeing others be sentenced has scared her,” the insider added.
The source went on to say that Loughlin “is trying to live a normal everyday life and to take this time to stay strong but it isn’t easy. Lori doesn’t have the support she once had.”
“She is feeling a ‘fall from grace’ having had a persona as a wholesome mom and now being seen as a pariah,” the insider continued. “People keep giving Lori a hard time for being out and about and looking carefree, but she realizes that she might end up in prison and this might just be her last months of freedom for some time.”

“I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney’s Office,” Huffman said afterward. “I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions.”
Even if she won’t plead guilty in court, we hope that Loughlin can eventually own up to what she did publicly. If she ever wants to win back her fans and work in the entertainment world again, it is crucial that she accepts responsibility for her crimes. If she isn’t able to do that, perhaps prison really is the best place for her.
