Today In “You Don’t Say!”: Prosecutors Believe That Olivia Jade Was Involved In The College Admissions Scam
Here’s some news which should shock absolutely nobody: Us Weekly reports that prosecutors claim that Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli told their daughter Olivia Jade to be careful around her nosy high school guidance counselor. Remember that guy who got yelled at because he wondered when Olivia learned how to row? He’s back!
Lori and Mossimo finally pleaded guilty to their role in the College Admissions Scandal which brought down a bunch of rich folks, including Felicity Huffman. They admitted to paying $500,00 for College Admissions Scandal mastermind, Rick Singer, to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, into USC by faking some rowing credentials. Just ahead of Lori and Mossimo’s sentencing hearing on Friday, the prosecution released a memo to the judge, and in it, they say that Lori and Mossimo told Olivia to keep a low-profile around her suspicious counselor. Luckily for them, makeup YouTuber and influencer Olivia Jade specializes in keeping shit to herself.
We already heard rumors that Olivia Jade knew about her parents’ alleged bribery scheme (see: her hilarious resume) and how such knowledge could mean legal trouble for her and her sister down the line. Well, the prosecution really wants to remind a judge of that. In the memo, Assistant U.S. Attorney, Justin O’Connell, reminded the judge of those photos Olivia took as more evidence that she was probably in on it:
“The crime Giannulli and Loughlin committed was serious. Over the course of two years, they engaged twice in Singer’s fraudulent scheme. They involved both their daughters in the fraud, directing them to pose in staged photographs for use in fake athletic profiles and instructing one daughter how to conceal the scheme from her high school counselor.”
According to the prosecution, Olivia asked her parents if she should tell her high school guidance counselor that USC was her first pick of universities. Lori and Mossimo allegedly told her to keep it on the DL with Lori saying:
“Yes… But it might be a flag for the weasel to meddle.”
Mossimo called the counselor a “nosey bastard,” and Lori reminded Olivia:
“Don’t say too much to that man.”
As part of Mossimo’s plea deal, he’s agreed to serve five months in prison, pay a $250,000 fine, and do 250 hours of community service. Lori has agreed to two months in prison, 100 hours of community service, and a $150,000 fine. They both agreed to two years of probation after they get out of the clink. But the judge has the final say.
I wonder if the judge will take this into consideration? Like wow, they knew their crimes were wrong? I don’t think that matters when it comes to rich people getting sentenced. If the prosecution really wants the judge to be harsh on Lori and Mossimo, they should include what their fellow richies at the Bel-Air Country Club think about them. Once the judge hears that Lori and Mossimo are in fact not a gentleman or gentlewoman, he’ll throw the book at them!
