Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are expected to waive their rights to separate counsel and present a "united front" in the Varsity Blues college scandal at their next court appearance.
“Giannulli and Loughlin are innocent of the charges brought against them and are eager to clear their names,” their lawyers argue in documents obtained and reported by Mercury News. “And they believe their interests will be advanced most effectively by presenting a united front against the Government’s baseless accusations.”
Former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani told the publication that having joint representation could make it more difficult for the couple to appeal based on "inadequate counsel."
Loughlin seems to be confident they'll be found innocent, but some lawyers say think again.
"The chances that Lori will face jail are substantial," attorney Matthew M. Maddox told Personal Space.
In the midst of their legal troubles, the family still took a moment to celebrate a positive occasion — with both daughters offering public birthday wishes on Instagram after over five months of social media silence there.
Their parents' next day in court will be August 27.
