Lori Loughlin made an appearance in Boston
Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman make court appearances in college admissions scandal. The court date was in Boston, Massachusetts yesterday April 3rd. The defendants are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services. Lori Laughlin's court date happened recently and she is facing major consequences. Loughlin is going to have to face anywhere between six to twenty-one months in prison if convicted or plead guilty. There are 50 people total in this case and 5 of them have already pleaded guilty. Many people from the highly competitive schools are included in the case and have agreed to plead guilty such as, Mark Riddell, who cheated for the students on the SAT's and ACT's.
Stanford, University of Southern California, Georgetown University, and other schools said that they are going to be reviewing the admissions of students that participated in the case. Several brands have distanced themselves from Lori Loughlin and her daughter that is a social media influencer, Olivia. I think for all the kids that have prepared for college, studied and was dedicated to studying for the SAT and ACT in order to get accepted into college looks misrepresented to the public and this society because Lori Loughlin showed that she takes advantage of higher education and does not respect people that do and want to pursue the goal of going to college to earn a degree.
No one should take advantage of a higher education degree because it takes a lot of work and a great work ethic. Some people in this society have the wrong image of what college actually is and that it does have a meaning behind it. A businessman that was part of the college admissions scandal was allegedly accused $250,000. CBS News correspondent Don Dahler reported that both Loughlin and Huffman will have limited time to travel from their homes, and must receive court permission to travel internationally for their acting careers.
Many news outlets such as CBS, CNN, etc have been talking about this college admissions scandal. They have been going in depth and detail about the specific case. When Lori Loughlin arrived at federal court on Wednesday, she was greeted by her fans who were outside the courthouse. According to CBS, "Loughlin, and her husband, clothing designer Mossimo Giannulli, have each been charged by federal prosecutors for their roles in the college admissions cheating and bribery scandal" (CBS News). Some people that were in the crowd interrupted as well- including one yelled, "Pay for my tuition Lori!, CBS reports. Unfortunately, Lori Loughlin has people that don't like her because of this college admissions scandal.
In Boston, on Wednesday, there were a lot of reporters and publicity around Loughlin and Huffman's car. It is sad how Lori Loughlin is handling this situation because she is under major publicity, pressure, and the crowds as well. My perspective of being a college student is you have to earn your degree in order to receive it. People, mentors, or your support system can help you through your journey but they can't do the work for you. Always trust in your work instead of this college admissions scandal as an example of someone cheating their way through of getting admitted to college.
