Actress Lori Loughlin Back in Court Over College Admissions Scandal

Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband will appear in a Boston courtroom today.

It’s related to the charges against them in the college admissions scandal.

Today’s hearing will address potential conflict of interest issues regarding the couple’s lawyers.

They want to be jointly represented by the same law firm.

Loughlin and her husband are charged with conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering.

They could face up to 20 years in prison on each charge.

Prosecutors say the couple paid $500,000 to a fake charity to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California.

They’re also accused of falsely designating the girls as crew team recruits.

Both deny the accusations.
