Lori Loughlin, husband plead not guilty to fraud, money laundering

-

Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband are taking a hard pass on revisiting Boston any time soon, informing the judge presiding over their college admissions cheating cases they are waiving their right to appear for arraignment and are instead pleading not guilty on paper to indictments charging the Hollywood power couple with fraud and money laundering.

Magistrate Judge M. Page Kelley Monday granted requests from Loughlin, 54, and American fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, 55, to effectively avoid a sequel of the paparazzi spectacle that met them outside U.S. District Court in South Boston for their initial appearances.

“Ms. Loughlin and her counsel affirm that Ms. Loughlin has received a copy of the second superseding indictment and that Ms. Loughlin pleads NOT GUILTY to each of the charges against her,” reads a pro forma court filing made public Monday that bears the “Full House” and “Fuller House” star’s signature.

Kelley allowed similar requests from nine other parents facing the same charges for the alleged “Operation Varsity Blues” scandal and up to 40 years in federal prison if convicted. They are David Sidoo, Robert Zangrillo, Homayoun Zadeh, Elisabeth Kimmel, Michelle Janavs, John Wilson, I-Hsin Chen, Gamal Abdelaziz and Douglas Hodge.
