Loughlin, meanwhile, allegedly wanted her daughters to get into the University of Southern California so badly that she and Giannulli paid approximately $500,000 in bribes to falsely designate their daughters as recruits to the USC crew team - despite the fact that they did not participate in crew.

Nearly two weeks after their last court stint in Boston, the couple have also waived their right to appear in court for an arraignment on the matter.

Huffman has already agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest service services mail fraud, but Loughlin, who faces the same charges, is said to be apprehensive to follow suit.

And things got worse for the mother-of-two on Tuesday, after Loughlin and her husband we named among 14 other parents who were indicted on an additional charge of money laundering conspiracy.

The criminal complaint against Giannulli and Loughlin includes evidence from a cooperating witness, emails, bank records and a recorded phone call with each parent.

In March, the couple was indicted for allegedly taking part in a large scheme involving parents who paid substantial bribes to get their kids into elite universities.

(Paul Marotta/Getty Images) Felicity Huffman exits the John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse after appearing in Federal Court to answer charges stemming from college admissions scandal, April 3, 2019, in Boston.

Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli have officially said "no way, Jose" to a plea deal.

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.

The actress Felicity Huffman was among 13 parents who pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit fraud last week. Macy was not charged in the scam.

Gather round, children, because I have an update on everyone's favorite college admissions scandal, aka "Operation Varsity Blues." "My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty".
