In this never-ending saga of a college admissions scandal, it appears there's a new update that turns the tables somewhat. Reportedly, Lori Loughlin wants to see all evidence against her as the former Hallmark star continues to maintain her innocence. Needless to say, folks are not amused and are letting Lori have it.

  • Lori, her husband, and a number of others are now facing up to 40 years in prison for their alleged involvement in a college admissions scam.

    Initially, Lori and husband Mossimo Giannulli were facing up to 20 years (each) on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud. The Hollywood couple reportedly paid upwards of $500,000 to get their daughters -- Isabella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19 -- into USC by posing as recruits for the university's crew team.

    The couple had a plea deal on the table that included a minimum of two years behind bars, but ultimately rejected that plea deal. Welp, that likely was not the best move as Mossimo and Lori were indicted on new charges -- fraud and money laundering -- that could carry up to 20 years in prison that are separate from the initial 20 they were facing.

    ... hence the 40 years.

  • And it appears Lori wants to see all the evidence against her before any motions are filed.

    Entertainment Tonight reports Lori and Mossimo filed court documents on Monday "asking the court to suspend all motions by the government until their scheduled hearing on June 3."

  • Apparently, Lori and Mossimo -- in addition to the other 15 defendants -- have yet to see the government's "extremely voluminous" report against them.

    As a result, they're requesting to see any and all alleged receipts before motions are filed in courts.

    Before this request, Mossimo and Lori pleaded not guilty to all charges against them that leave the pair exposed to possibly more prison time if found guilty. And with one of her daughters previously under criminal investigation, Lori is reportedly fearful prosecutors will go after her daughters to get a guilty plea from her.

  • Interesting.

    Seriously, this is all interesting.

    With Lori reportedly not thinking the scam was a "huge deal," we wonder what she needs to see for it to all finally sink in. It also doesn't help that the coach who helped Lori's daughter is pleading guilty.

    Then again, if one hasn't seen evidence against them from an accuser, there could definitely be a case there.

    See, interesting.
