The worries just keep coming for actress Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli as they face the repercussions of their alleged involvement in a college admissions scam. Lori's future is still very much up in the air, but the possibility of a trial is pretty much certain, and the actress fears what this means for her two daughters.

  • A legal source told People that Lori is most afraid for her two daughters, Olive Jade (19) and Isabella Rose (20).

    The source said, “Lori is very concerned about what a trial will do to her daughters. It will undermine every accomplishment they have in the future and it will be part of their story forever.”

    The actress, along with all the others involved, are accused of falsifying standardized test scores and lying about kids being athletes. Lori and her husband allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters could be recruits for the USC crew team ... even though they didn't participate in crew in high school. 

    So, yeah, there's really no way not to involve the kids in the legal process at this point.

  • On Monday, Lori and her husband decided to plead not guilty, and that means that there could be a very length trial ahead of them.

    The legal source continued, “It’s not in their best interest for this to go to trial, and Lori knows it. Because if it goes to trial, the girls will have to take the stand, and be cross examined by a prosecution that wants nothing more than to put a notch on their belt.”

    Lori is reportedly "very afraid" that her daughters will be forced to testify, and that experience could be more traumatizing than what's happening now. We can only imagine what it would be like to have to help prove the guilt or innocence of your own parents.

  • Any mom would be concerned about her kids if they were in this situation, but we have to remember, Lori put her daughters in this position herself.

    Both Lori and her husband face charges of mail fraud and money laundering, so they had to have thought about how all of this would affect their daughters someday, right?

  • Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose have already been somewhat forced to step away from the limelight after the scandal.

    The two reportedly left USC out of fear of being bullied, and we can only expect that things will get worse for these girls once Lori and her husband face their verdicts.

    No matter what happens with Lori, let's all just hope that she's able to protect her daughters the best that she can. This whole scam is almost too messy to keep up with now.
