Lori Laughlin apparently believes she is completely innocent in this lawsuit where she essentially paid the school to get her daughter in. Lori and her husband are using the defense that they were breaking rules, but not technically breaking laws.
“[Lori and her husband] claim they were under the impression they might be breaking rules, but not laws,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “They feel they were manipulated by those involved and are planning that as part of their defense. They realize how serious the charges are, but feel that once the judge hears their story he will see they had no bad intentions.”
Lori for some reason believes that since she didn’t believe she was breaking any laws that she shouldn’t be charged with anything in regards to money laundering. “They in no way felt they were money laundering,” the source explained. “They thought the money would be used for a donation and to benefit the school. Even so, this has been one of the toughest decisions of Lori‘s life.”
“When Lori heard the number of years she could spend in prison she broke down crying. The thought of being separated from her loved ones for years brought her to her knees,” the source continued. “She has watched as the other families cut deals but her husband feels they are not guilty and should plead not guilty.”
Do YOU think they will be going to jail?
