Why Lori Loughlin Rejected Plea Deal Before Second Indictment

Lori Loughlin Is “Freaking Out” After Realising She’ll Likely Do Jail Time

In a new video below via the network's official Instagram, star Erin Krakow announced that there will be a season 7 for the long-running drama set to premiere at some point in 2020.

"You've already heard "When Calls the Heart" will return with a special two-night event Sunday, May 5 and Monday, May 6".

Commercially, there was every reason in the world for Hallmark to bring When Calls the Heart back, given that season 6 is now averaging better ratings on average than season 5.

A rep for Loughlin did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

Loughlin and her designer husband Mossimo Giannulli are charged with paying $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of Southern California as fake recruits for the crew team.

Lori Loughlin didn't take a plea deal for the fraud charges she's now facing in the college admissions cheating scandal and that's reportedly because the actress doesn't think of her actions as illegal.

"We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations".

Loughlin was also dropped from "Fuller House", which appears on Netflix.

They haven't publicly addressed the allegations against them.

While motherly love is all-encompassing and unconditional, (as every media outlet seeks to inform us) Lori Loughlin has arguably taken it too far.

Some of the other parents indicted in the scandal, including Felicity Huffman, the actress from "Desperate Housewives", have accepted a plea deal earlier this week, and plead guilty to charges.

Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, could each get a maximum 20-year prison sentence if convicted.

While 40 years in prison seems like a wildly unrealistic outcome, it appears that the star will do at least some length of time behind bars.

The superseding indictment unsealed last week charges that the couple and 14 other parents conspired to "conceal their fraud scheme by funneling bribe and other payments through the facade" of the Key Worldwide Foundation, a sham charity established by William "Rick" Singer, who federal prosecutors identified as the ringleader of the nationwide scam.

Loughlin, who was indicted last month in connection with a bribery scheme in which rich parents paid big bucks to get their kids into elite schools, was sacked by Hallmark soon after the scandal hit, and the show took a break to explore its "creative options".

Huffman released an apology statement on April 8. "I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions", Huffman said, reported CNN.

According to a different source who spoke with People, Lori Loughlin was reluctant to plead guilty, in part, because of the effect it might have on her family. "I paid 500 grand to get my daughter into USC", McKinnon says.
