Lori Loughlin & Mossimo appeared in court via video-link to plead guilty last Friday
Last Friday, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli appeared (via video link) in a federal court in Boston to plead guilty to a few of the charges in the Operation Varsity Blues case. Lori and Mossimo were the two most high-profile parents who refused to take a proffered plea deal last year. Lori seemed convinced that she could simply leak wholesome stories to People Magazine and magically convince people that she was completely innocent. It looks like federal prosecutors went to Lori and Mossimo again and offered them another plea deal. They took it this time. So this is the deal they worked out, complete with sentencing recommendations from the DOJ:

More than a year after rejecting a plea deal from federal prosecutors, actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, appeared before a federal judge via video conference Friday to plead guilty to charges stemming from the college admissions cheating scandal. However, the judge said he couldnt accept the pleas until he sees their pre-sentencing reports from the Massachusetts Probation Service.

Loughlin, 55, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud while Giannulli, 56, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. The couple were the 23rd and 24th parents to admit guilt in the college admissions scandal. During Fridays hearing, Loughlin rocked side-to-side, occasionally speaking with her lawyer and looking out the window.

Under the terms of the plea agreements, Loughlin will serve two months behind bars and Giannulli agreed to serve five months. The judge scheduled the sentencing hearing for the couple for Aug. 21. In addition, Loughlin was ordered to pay a $150,000 fine and was placed on two years of supervised release with 100 hours of community service. Giannulli has to pay a $250,000 fine. He, too, will be on two years of supervised release and must complete 250 hours of community service.

Prosecutors dismissed charges of money laundering and federal programs bribery that were added after the case was initially filed. Had they gone to trial and been convicted, each faced up to 20 years in prison for each charge against them.

People Magazine spoke to someone in Lori?s camp about why they finally decided to make a deal, and that source said: This was a now or never deal. It was presented as the last clear chance for them to plead before going to trial, and they knew that if they were found guilty, they were realistically looking at more than a year behind bars, probably more like three or four. I mean, if convicted of just some of the charges, they would have actually faced 10 or 20 years in prison. I would have taken the deal too. Of course, I would never cheat the system to get a kid into college, so there?s that too. As for the sentencing hearing, which isn?t until August, I would hope that all of that means that Lori and Mossimo will actually serve their full sentences and not be released in a matter of days because of the coronavirus.

Meanwhile, People Mag also did a sympathetic piece on Lori?s scamming daughters Olivia Jade and Bella:

A legal insider tells PEOPLE that their daughters Olivia Jade, 20, and Bella, 21, are behind their parents decision. I know that the girls have been very supportive of their parents throughout this whole ordeal and just want them to be happy, the insider says. They realize that this was done to help them, and there is no animosity there. Last I knew, they were encouraging their parents to fight this, but obviously that?s all changed now.

A second source confirms that the whole family is on the same page. Olivia and Bella also want it to be over. They agree the plea is the best option, the source explains. Lori and Mossimo want to be able to enjoy their lives again. They want to enjoy it with Olivia and Bella. They don?t feel like they gave up by accepting a plea ? they are doing what?s best for their family.?

[From People]

LOL, why would Olivia and Bella have animosity towards their parents at all? Why even bring that up? The whole family worked together to scam USC?s college admissions process and only Lori and Mossimo were charged. GMAFB.

Jaime King's estranged husband accuses her of opioid & alcohol addiction

Jaime King's estranged husband accuses her of opioid & alcohol addiction
Last week, Jaime King filed for divorce from her husband Kyle Newman and she tried to file for two more things: an emergency custody order and a temporary restraining order. The custody order was not granted, and the restraining order was granted against Newman until June 8th, which is apparently when some of this will be figured out in a court appearance. After the judge rejected the custody order, Newman released a statement basically saying that Jaime has issues and he?s been taking care of their two sons ?solo? during the pandemic, and reportedly he?s in Pennsylvania while she?s in LA. They likely haven?t seen each other in months. I?ve seen many commenters immediately take her side but I?ve mostly just been waiting for more information. It seemed like there was more stuff about to come out. And now it is:

Jaime King and Kyle Newman are in an all-out war for their kids with Kyle now saying he needs sole physical custody because her alleged opioid and alcohol addiction is out of control. The director requested an emergency hearing Friday morning, asking the judge to let him take custody of their 6 and 4-year-old sons, James and Leo. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Kyle claims the actress/model has spent the last decade high and refuses to get any meaningful help for her opioid addictions.

Kyle says things came to a head on January 12, when he and 14 of Jaimes friends staged an intervention begging her to get help. He gave her an ultimatum get treatment or the kids and I need to leave for their own safety.

Kyle claims Jaime went to Cirque Lodge rehab facility in Utah, but left shortly after arriving because she tried to check in with a bunch of pills on her including Adderall and Clonazepam. In the docs, he says Jaime was working in Canada in early February and asked him to send the boys to spend a couple weeks with her but 3 days into the visit she sent them back to Kyle. He claims she later admitted she was having an affair and using booze and drugs at the time.

Kyle says he and the boys have been quarantining in Pennsylvania, and Jaime has only seen them for 3 days in the past 2 months. On May 15, he says he and Jaime were laying out plans to divorce, when she accused him of stealing their kids even though she was the one who insisted they go to Pennsylvania. He tried to reassure her, but claims she got angrier and threatened to ruin him.

TMZ broke the story Jaime filed divorce docs on May 18, and also requested a restraining order to keep Kyle away from her and the kids. As we reported, the judge ruled the boys could remain with Kyle, who says Jaime blindsided him with her court filings. Two nannies and one of Jaimes former assistants submitted declarations, describing her alleged addiction to opioids, and claim shes putting the children at risk by among other things driving with them while under the influence.

Kyle is asking for sole physical custody, shared legal custody and wants Jaime out of the family home in L.A. so he can live there with their sons. Friday morning, the judge rejected his emergency order for custody, and said both sides can argue their cases at a later court date. So for now, its status quo the kids can remain with Kyle in Pennsylvania.

Holy YIKES. TMZ also had updates on the situation, including accusations from Jaime that Kyle has been ?tormenting? her for years and isolating her from friends:

A rep for King tells us, This is another vicious, failed attempt of Kyle to continue his abuse of Jaime and manipulate the court system. Today Kyle was denied all requests for emergency orders and the judge granted Jaime shared legal custody of their two children. The temporary domestic violence restraining order remains in place to protect Jaime.

The judge ruled that Kyle must stay away from Jamie, and weve obtained the documents filed by the actress alleging torment. King alleges Kyle has tracked her electronically, isolated her from friends and work opportunities and has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars out of their account. She says she feels sick to her stomach with every encounter with Kyle.

[From TMZ]

If he could get ?two nannies and one of Jaimes former assistants? to submit declarations to the court on such short notice, he?s probably got a lot of documentation to back up his claims. That being said, both stories could be true she could be an addict who endangered the lives of her children AND he could be an emotionally abusive, controlling SOB. In fact, those two dysfunctional personalities end up together often enough. My Spidey sense told me last week that there was a lot of mess about this split and now that same Spidey sense is telling me that these two are going to lob accusations at each other for months.
