Lori Loughlin, husband to plead guilty in college admissions scandal

May 21 (Reuters) - Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, have agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy charges for trying to fraudulently win their children’s admission to the University of Southern California, the U.S. Department of Justice said on Thursday.

Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 56, are among 53 people charged with involvement in a scheme where wealthy parents conspired with a California admissions consultant to use bribery and other fraud to secure the admission of their children to top schools.

The Justice Department said Loughlin agreed to serve two months in prison and Giannulli agreed to serve five months in prison under their respective plea agreements. (Reporting by Jonathan Stempel in New York; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
