    No..!!..Apparently a Minimum Federal Camp Experience (never locked in real cells) of 5 months of "shear hell on earth"
    didn't help her--in any way-- to learn anything, let alone try to help anyone. My opinion only....

    Martha Stewart:


    “Did I feel that ‘you can make lemons out of lemonade’ and ‘what hurts you makes you
    stronger’? No. None of those adages fit at all,” she said on the podcast, “It’s a horrible experience, nothing is good about it, nothing.”

    Stewart, now 76, was placed in a minimum security prison, but assured Katie Couric that it was no walk in the park. “There are lots and lots of disturbing things that go on in an incarceration like that,” she said.

    “In minimum security you still couldn’t walk out the gate or cross the river. There’s still guards and it’s still nasty.”

    I see 5 possible outcomes for Lori and hubby and only one out of the 5 include no Federal Minimum Security prison time.
    If anyone sees other outcomes please share, thankx!


    #1.) A plea deal - will get Federal Minimum Security prison time.
    #2.) Go to trial and get convicted of all 3 charges - will get Federal Minimum Security prison time.
    #3.) Go to trial and get convicted of 2 out of 3 charges - will get Federal Minimum Security prison time.
    #4.) Go to trial and get convicted of only 1 out of 3 charges - will get Federal Minimum Security prison time.
    #5.) Go to trial and get acquitted of all 3 charges - will get no Federal Minimum Security prison time.

    @Cool Cats good summary. Based on what we have seen, I see #5 as being a .001% chance of happening.

    Too bad they don't have Kim Foxx available to make it all go away.

    Full House' star Lori Loughlin undergoing 'grueling' mock trial prep for college admissions scandal case

    Fox BusinessNovember 27, 2019

    “It’s her full-time job and she is very involved with her defense,” Us Weekly quoted an anonymous source as saying. “When not at her lawyer’s office, Lori is emailing and texting with the team.”

    ‘TOO LATE’ FOR LORI LOUGHLIN TO CHANGE NOT GUILTY PLEA: JUDGE NAPOLITANO

    They’ve been conducting “grueling” mock trials to prepare Loughlin for court, according to the report. She and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, face charges of mail fraud, bribery and money laundering.

    The couple is accused of paying about $500,000 to get their daughters on the University of Southern California crew team, though neither had previously participated in the sport.

    Loughlin, the star of sitcoms "Full House" and "Fuller House," and Giannulli pleaded not guilty.

    And while Loughlin has reportedly been hard at work preparing for a trial, it will be some time still before she takes the stand. A trial has not yet been scheduled; status conferences for her and Giannulli’s respective cases are set for January of 2020.

    Even the acting skills of Meryl Streep couldn’t get her out of this mess.

    Oh boy is Lori in for a reality check.

    Cool black cat......
    How can she not know what the public thinks? I think one reason is because she is extremely wealthy and she has sycophants all around her saying only what she wants to hear. What other explanation? Also I question her attorneys' advice, but maybe Mossimo overruled them?

    Sad.:( She likely would have only gotten a few months if she had done what Felicity Huffman did:
    Take full responsibility - be serious in public, no autographs - have publicist put out apology letter - TAKE THE FIRST OFFERED PLEA DEAL IMMEDIATELY..!!!!!

    I never thought I'd say this about Federal Prison but Lori would have been
    lucky-lucky to get 3 months! It's even possible she could have been out of prison and on probation by Christmas Day, had she copied Huffman.
    No very risky 2020 trial with horrible worry and stress..:confused:

    Thank you. My cat is a Persian called Winston. Is the cat it your avatar yours? What a stunning cat.

    I agree with what you have said about Lori. I can’t get my head around the way she and her husband have conducted themselves in this case.

    I think that narcissism is the problem here. She and her husband think that they can beat this, bravado and fluff. The problem I see, is that their continued denial, not only hurts their case, but continues to keep their kids names in the media as well. Parents should have taken that into consideration as well.

    Lori should know what WE ALL KNOW a Jury will see her as entitled and that is not the way to go into a Jury trial. She needs better lawyers and publicists. Opinion.
    I knew cute fluffy Winston was a Persian. My avatar cat isn't mine but is a real cat. I have a fluffy black Maine Coon cat among others. Here is another very for real COOL CAT named Venus, easy to look this special cat up! All over the internet.

    I APOLOGIZE GOING A BIT OFF TOPIC... I luv cats! i have a soft spot for all animals!

    I agree. After her daughter was photographed flipping the bird to the media, I knew all I needed to know about that family. I don't think it would be possible for them to be contrite and offer a public apology.

    Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade returns to YouTube amid college admissions scandal

    In the video uploaded Sunday and titled "hi again," Olivia Jade Giannulli said she is excited to return to vlogging.

    “Obviously I've been gone for a very long time,” she said, adding she was debating for many months when to return and was “terrified” to upload a new video.

    “I’m legally not allowed to speak on anything going on right now,” she said of her parents’ legal issues.

    Still, Giannulli said she felt lost not being active on the video-sharing platform. “I actually really, really miss it,” she said of vlogging. “I feel like a huge part of me is just not the same.”

    “Thank you so much for your patience or if you’ve stuck around for nine months just waiting,” she said.”I really appreciate it. This is the best I can do and I want to move on with my life.”

    Giannulli said in the two-minute video that viewers should expect more content from her soon. “I’m really excited to start filming again and start uploading.”

    __

    Glad to see the comments are along the lines of "we haven't missed you"
