The college admissions scandal continues to rumble on with seemingly no end in sight. Many celebrities involved continue to await trial, while others have already had to answer for their charges. But while most people focus on the parents who tried to get their kids into college through various illegal methods, some are looking at their children instead.
This is especially the case for actress Lori Loughlin and her daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella. With the sisters no longer attending the University of Southern California, it's caused more people to wonder if they're going to face the same situation as their mother. But according to former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani, Loughlin's daughters could be arrested as part of the college admissions scandal.
"At a minimum the daughters will be witnesses in a trial against their parents, but they could also be charged as defendants. The government has made it clear that they are going to keep increasing pressure on both Lori and Mossimo. By not pleading, Lori and Mossimo are exposing their children to being charged," she explained.
Yet a source to Loughlin disagrees with Rahmani, saying, "If Lori had any indication that the girls were at risk, she’d want to plead guilty — even though she believes that she did nothing wrong. She is not going to let them spend time in jail for something that they didn’t do. Lori is a fantastic mother who would take the fall for the girls even if it cost her everything."
Another individual has spoken up to agree with the anonymous source's opinion. Legal expert James J. Leonard Jr. recently said, "I see absolutely no scenario where the Department of Justice would charge either of the daughters. That would be absolute overkill and is contrary to the interest of justice."
So will Olivia Jade and Isabella be implicated in the college admissions scandal? Will they end up being arrested? Between all these differing opinions and what's going on with the scandal itself, it's hard to tell at this point. Here's hoping that we'll find out for sure sooner than later.
