Lori Loughlin & Mossimo Giannulli: Prosecutors Keep Evidence Proofing We Are Innocent!

Lori Loughlin & Mossimo Giannulli: Prosecutors Keep Evidence Proofing We Are Innocent!

The couple's attorney Sean Berkowitz claimed in court documents filed in Massachusetts' U.S. District Court on Friday, December 13 that the prosecution has kept them away from evidence - namely, statements that Singer allegedly made during interviews with the Federal Bureau of Investigation - that could help the couple's case, PEOPLE reports.

The U.S. Attorney's Office declined to comment and a USC rep hasn't responded to a request for comment.

Defense attorneys are asking a judge to order prosecutors to release the beneficial evidence, some of which they say shows statements made by Singer detailing how their money would be used and USC's knowledge of the operation.

While many who were charged have pleaded guilty, Donna Heinel, a former senior associate athletic director at the USC, pleaded not guilty.

Officials at USC have said the couple's daughters are no longer enrolled. Heinel has been fired by USC. They pleaded not guilty.

But to hear their lawyers tell it, Loughlin and Giannulli believed they were sending money to a charity in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service, and that the money would "support programs geared toward helping underprivileged children" and "legitimate university activities" at USC.

Lori Loughlin and his wife Mossimo Giannulli seems to be sick of sitting back and hoping for the best - because according to insiders, now they are ready to go on the offensive!

"More fundamentally, the government is applying a flawed disclosure standard that systematically deprives Giannulli and Loughlin of information necessary to prepare their case and ensure a fair trial", reads Friday's filing.

Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as recruits to the crew team, even though neither participated in the sport.

In confessing to four crimes in March, Singer conceded that in spite of its affirmed strategic supporting oppressed youngsters, his establishment had little capacity past enabling his customers to make charge deductible installments that Singer at that point divided rewards to school mentors and test executives.

Rick Singer is the man who allegedly orchestrated the entire scheme.

According to Us Weekly, Loughlin debated entering a guilty plea after she was hit with additional bribery charges, but Giannulli changed her mind, a source said.

Operators have likewise talked with Philip Petrone and Jacqueline Landry, co-chief of school advising and head of school, separately, at Marymount High, where Loughlin and Giannullis little girls went to class. Giannulli then told Petrone that his younger daughter, Olivia, was in fact a coxswain and that he would tell USC as much, according to the summary.

"Petrone told investigators that "(a) Giannulli asked if Petrone had told USC that his daughters were bad candidates, and Petrone confirmed that he did not; and (b) Giannulli told Petrone that Olivia was a coxswain; and (c) Petrone told Giannulli that he would tell USC that Olivia was a coxswain".
