Lori Loughlin, husband hit with new charges in college admissions scam

Lori Loughlin and her husband were indicted Tuesday for participating in the college admissions scam — and hit with new charges, prosecutors announced.

A federal grand jury in Boston handed up the indictment against the “Full House” star, hubby Mossimo Giannulli and 14 other parents on charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud — plus the new charge of conspiracy to commit money laundering, prosecutors said.

The move comes a day after the feds announced that 13 other parents arrested in the scandal — including actress Felicity Huffman — had agreed to take plea deals.

Prosecutors say the rich moms and dads paid college-prep adviser William “Rick” Singer to ease their kids’ admission into top schools — by either cheating on their admission exams or bribing coaches to name them as bogus athletic recruits.

They face up to 20 years behind bars.
