Hallmark renews When Calls the Heart for season 7 without Lori Loughlin

Hallmark renews When Calls the Heart for season 7 without Lori Loughlin

Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband intend to plead not guilty to charges stemming from a nationwide college entrance cheating scandal, but don't want to travel all the way to Boston to do so, according to court documents filed Monday. They were indicted this week in a federal MA court on conspiracy to commit money laundering and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.

On Tuesday, both of them along with 14 other parents were accused of money laundering conspiracy. Although, most experts agree that the chance of sentencing that severe is nearly nonexistent.

"Lori still believed in the end she would just get a slap on the wrist", the source claimed.

"She has been in complete denial and thought maybe she could skate by". "It wasn't until she was faced with [the] additional [charge] that she saw the true ramifications".

In the days following their rejection, the 54-year-old is said to be kicking herself for not taking the deal that could have drastically reduced their sentences, and is reportedly "freaking out" as the prospect of jail time looms over them.

"Based on these charges and the fact that they have not been in legal trouble before, and the fact that, probably, they are not a security risk, they'll probably be at a minimum security prison", Stockman speculated.

Adding that her daughter majored in Communications, she said, "Yeah, and you know what her job is now?"

Several other indicted parents have also entered not guilty pleas. Last week, Loughlin and Giannulli rejected the very same plea agreement Felicity accepted.

The recent college admissions scandal, which exposed Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman and Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin for allegedly bribing colleges to get their children admitted to prestigious schools, may result in 40 years behind bars for one of the Hollywood elites.

It's the biggest college admissions case ever prosecuted by the Justice Department.

According to a different source who spoke with People, Lori Loughlin was reluctant to plead guilty, in part, because of the effect it might have on her family.

Huffman, the 56-year-old Emmy victor who stared in Desperate Housewives, was accused of paying $15,000 disguised as a charitable donation to have a proctor correct the answers on her daughter's Saturday.

In her first public remarks since her arrest, she Huffman said she'd take the consequences and took accountability for her actions.

Huffman is scheduled to appear in Boston's federal court on May 24 to enter her plea.
