If they go to trial and a jury finds them Not Guilty, then she can walk.  That's how the system works.

 

However, I can't imagine a sympathetic jury, but stranger things have happened.


@JohnnyEager   Yeah, unfortunately we know how that goes.  O.J., and Casey Anthony for example.

Re: Lori Loughlin and husband plead Not Guilty

No judge or jury is going to look kindly on how she has handled this so far..the autographs, joking with the prosecutors, etc...now the not guilty plea? She needs a reality check...and she will get it in the courtroom...if she isn’t able to buy her way out of that also.

I think her fan base tends to be more middle aged women from the Midwest, not California liberals. She has a very carefully crafted conservative, religious, girl-next-door image.

 

I think you meant CA conservatives but you are probably right about her fan base, it's limited.  But she hasn't been a girl in decades, at 50ish that boat has sailed.  She has finely crafted image for the Lifetime TV fan base which is older, conservative women.  Although, that boat has sailed too.

Re: Lori Loughlin and husband plead Not Guilty

I don't know where you all live but the conservative and religious folks I know are the FIRST to condemn cheating. They are not the types to turn the other cheek; it's more of an OFF WITH HER HEAD kind of fury for illegal and immoral behavior especially when it involves higher education and cheating other peoples' children (maybe even their own) from a place in a top school.

 

Yes Ma'am, indeed!

Re: Lori Loughlin and husband plead Not Guilty

  The Feds bringing charges is a lot different than the local DA/police. They don’t file charges they can’t win. They have a conviction rate of over 99 %. 

  Lori isn’t facing reality.The Feds are now talking about charging some of the kids. They mean business.Lori is making it worse for herself & exposing her daughters.

Re: Lori Loughlin and husband plead Not Guilty
