Prosecutors are determined to see that Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman receive jail time for their part in the elite college bribery case, according to a report.
Deadline reported Wednesday that jail time for the actresses appears more and more likely. Sources told the Tinseltown-focused website that law enforcement officials have signaled that Loughlin and Huffman could serve between six months and just under two years behind bars. However, their level of cooperation with the investigation will ultimately dictate the length of their sentences and fines, Deadlines source added. .
The Hallmark Channel, where Loughlin starred in popular holiday movies and the series When Calls the Heart, cut ties with her a day after her arrest.
Huffman, the 56-year-old former Desperate Housewives star, is charged with paying the admissions consultant at the center of the scheme $15,000 to have a proctor correct the answers on her daughters SAT.
The two actresses and Giannulli said little during the brief hearing in a packed Boston courtroom and were not asked to enter a plea. They remain free on bail. Several other parents were given similar hearings of a few minutes each.
The proceedings came three weeks after 50 people in all were charged with taking part in a scheme in which parents bribed coaches and helped rig test scores to get their children into some of the nations most selective universities, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and USC.
The case the biggest college admissions scheme ever prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department has roiled the world of higher education and amplified complaints the system is stacked in favor of the rich.

I would prefer seeing such aggressive prosecution directed at Comey, Lynch, Obama, Hitlery, Rice, Clapper, Brennan, Page, et al. and then move onto the corrupt politicians in the US Congress; we all know their names!
They thought because_everyone they know does it_ they could get away with it.
Abigail, how could you?!

I agree. If we just one of our guys in the WH maybe something would be done about them. Oh wait a minute ...
There are victims here, kids who didn’t get their rightful places in school because of fraud.
Jussie Smolette (sp?) is just the victim of himself.
She’ll need Rosie O’Donnell-types for protection.
Apparently, some of these wonderful parents took income tax deductions for their “donations to charities to get their losers into colleges.
So, they may be facing some criminal charges for income tax evasion.
Maybe they’re saving the best scoundrals for last. One America under God.. One Justice and Liberty For All.
Here is how it works.
These two, although rich, are not sufficiently politically connected. They will be the jail time scapegoats to satisfy the public and the others with more blat will get a slap on the wrist and a fine.
IMO they and all the rest need time in the pokey. But it is these two who will be the showcase prosecutions. All kabuki theater for the hoi polloi. Think Martha Stewart.
It would give middle-class parents who would like to believe in fair play great satisfaction to have them spend the rest of their lives in Guantanamo. That being said, the ones who deserve jail time are the test takers, the coaches, the guy who facilitated these shenanigans. What about the schools? If they knew about it and looked the other way, if they were less “prestigious” schools, would they lose their accreditation?
Prosecutors Determined to Jail Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin in College Bribery Case
Bad me, the first thing I thought was the prosecutor didn’t have enough money to get their kid in to a prestigious school.
The ****** faggot being let off has pissed a whole BUNCH o' righteous people off and no good will come of it in the end.
We're gonn'a be OJ'd again this summer unless some REAL justice is meted out .... GET THOSE FRIKKIN' CLINTONS !
They should blame it on MAGA hat wearing Nigerians so that they can get all of the charged dismissed.
Add to those the people at the colleges who took the bribes. Screw the colleges.
Ten grand and some Democrat campaign work should about do it.
President Trump and the Department Of Justice are not afraid to investigate and prosecute rich, famous white women.
What were these 2 thinking???! More connections and money than 99% of US citizens and they couldn’t find a better alternative to help their kids??
5 years in a supermax
