Prosecutors for Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli’s case in the college admissions scandal have released photos allegedly showing their daughters pretending to be rowers to secure themselves a position at the University of Southern California.
Fox News obtained court documents filed by the FBI on Wednesday that include images allegedly depicting the famous couple’s daughters, Isabella and Oliva-Jade Giannulli , dressed in workout gear on an ERG machine in order to make their admission to the university as rowers more believable.
Neither of the two girls had previously participated in the sport.
The documents also include email correspondence between Mossimo and scam mastermind (William “Rick” Singer in which they discuss staging the photos in an effort to sell the lie to the university.
Loughlin and Giannulli previously pleaded not guilty to expanded charges of bribery brought against them in October along with 57 other parents swept up in the scandal. The duo has been accused of arranging a total collective payment of $ 823, 0 to Singer to get their daughters recruited to USC as athletes on the crew team , despite never having participated in the sport.
However, the couple’s defense attorneys argue that they were under the impression the money they were giving Singer was going to legitimate donations to the university rather than outright bribery.
