The scam successfully got her two daughters accepted into the University Of Southern California under false crew team credentials. Both she and her husband pleaded not guilty to the charge, but later switched their plea. By having their children fake their way through admissions as elite crew athletes, when they had no substantial connection to the sport, Loughlin and her husband denied two other teens a chance to attend USC.

Judge Gorton had tough words for the duo, ““You are not stealing bread to feed your family. You have no excuse for your crime. That makes it all the more blameworthy.”

She came out with a few statements in her court hearing stating, “I am truly and profoundly and deeply sorry.” She then went on to admit, “I made an awful decision. I went along with a plan to give my daughters an unfair advantage in the college admissions process.”
