Lori Loughlin has maintained her innocence in the Varsity Blues scandal, and awaits an August 27 court date with her husband, Mossimo Giannulli; both are accused of using fraud to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli, into University of Southern California. But while Loughlin has seemed determined to fight against the legal charges, she may be adopting a softer attitude.
A source claiming to be close to the former Aunt Becky says that Loughlin's sorry for her role in Olivia Jade and Bella's college admissions process, telling PEOPLE, “Lori is remorseful, and she has definite regrets.”
“She’s embarrassed and hurt, and she knows that her reputation has been ruined for life," they added. "But she also believes the allegations against her aren’t true. She honestly didn’t think what she was doing was any different than donating money for a library or athletic field. That’s the crux of why she pleaded not guilty.”
The source dramatically proclaimed that Lori has "been spending the last several months in her own prison.”
Another anonymous source told Us Weekly that Lori is hoping for house arrest with an ankle monitor instead of jail time: “She’s willing to pay a substantial fine, over $2 million.” They added that her husband would rather go to trial in his case, despite their plan to have the same representation in court.
“Moss doesn’t want any plea deal and is expecting to be fully exonerated,” they explained.
We'll learn a lot more once that day in court happens.
