Lori Loughlin pleads not guilty in her first response to the college admissions scam

Neither girl participated in the sport, prosecutors said.

In all, the "Varsity Blues" investigation overseen by Massachusetts US Attorney Andrew Lelling ensnared some 50 people who allegedly paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to Singer, who choreographed fake athletic resumes, doctored SAT scores, and sometimes had his staff take courses for children whose academic performance was keeping them out of elite schools.

Several other parents who were indicted alongside Loughlin and Giannulli last week have also filed court documents entering not guilty pleas.

The "Desperate Housewives" star released a statement after the acceptance of her not guilty plea.

And on Monday, the embattled couple pled not guilty to charges of conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering in alleged connection to the massive college bribery scheme.

"I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community", Huffman said. I want to apologize to them.

My dad was here in 1997 and now I'm the dad with two kids there", he said. Woods eventually finished four strokes behind champion Lucas Glover.

But even with the potential 40-year sentence looming, Lori is reportedly still having a little trouble wrapping her head around the fact that she did anything wrong.

As most know, Lori and her man, Mossimo Giannulli, were implicated in a nationwide scam involving many other individuals as well, including Felicity Huffman and other lesser-known figures.

Context: Loughlin was one of the most high-profile parents named in the scandal, along with Felicity Huffman, who was one of 13 parents who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud charges, according to The Associated Press. Right now the options appear to be to either write Abigail out of the drama permanently in a way that doesn't require Lori Loughlin, or recast her character with another actress. "She has been in complete denial and thought maybe she could skate by", the source said.

Sources close to the case say that Loughlin and Giannulli initially rejected the prosecution's offer because they refused to agree to any jail time, yet that decision has already led to significant legal repercussions. Lori is finally realizing just how serious this is.

As it was previously reported, the Hallmark Channel severed their working relationship with the legendary actress following her arrest back in March for her involvement in the USC scandal.
