According to “People Magazine,” a crisis manager has reached out to Lori Loughlin due to her recent participation in a college admissions scam. The admissions scandal came to light in early 2019, and then on March 12, she was charged with mail fraud and money laundering.
On April 4, Loughlin appeared in court, where there were lots of fans chanting “Pay my tuition” while asking for autographs. There was even a fan who held up a sign that said “Auntie Becky can you pay my tuition?” When these remarks were made she seemed very calm and nonchalant about the situation. Someone even asked her how she was doing outside the courthouse and she said “I’m great.”
As the investigation continues, research says that she can serve up to 20 years in prison. Investigators have also held Loughlin accountable for bribing University of Southern California of $500,000 to secure her children a spot in college.
Loughlin was not the only person that was charged as part of the college admissions scandal. American film actress Felicity Huffman, was also charged as part of the scandal known as operation Varsity Blues. However, Huffman took the opposite approach of Loughlin. While Huffman admitted to the crime committed, Lori Loughlin insisted that she plans to deny all charges and fight. Felicity Huffman eventually wrote a letter apologizing to her family, friends and the rest of society for the harsh crime committed.
In light of what has happened it makes sense that the actress might need the help of a crisis manager. A crisis manager is someone who takes care of significant events that can put individuals in danger. Since Loughlin was accused in the college admissions scam, she is in serious need of a crisis manager. The college admissions scam is a example of how many wealthy individuals find different strategies to become even more fortunate.
