fraudulently designate their daughters special recruits to the university’s crew team — despite the fact the girls had no competitive rowing experience.
Loughlin and Giannulli have been charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in a flurry of indictments out of Boston that also snared “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman.
A conviction could result in a prison sentence up to 20 years, three years of supervised release and fines of $250,000 or more.
In a separate report Thursday, TMZ said Loughlin’s daughters Olivia Jade,19, and Isabella, 20, decided to voluntarily withdraw from USC.
The sisters never really wanted to attend the prestigious university in the first place and feared they would be bullied if they returned, sources told TMZ.
Olivia in particular “is a mess, despondent and feeling like it’s the end of the world,” one source reportedly said.
