Loughlin, on the other hand, has been indicted for all three charges and she has pled not guilty, which means she is facing a much harsher sentence if convicted.

The new charges, returned by a grand jury in the District of Massachusetts Tuesday, allege that Loughlin, Giannulli and the others bribed employees at the University of Southern California to bolster their kids' chances of gaining admission to the school.

Earlier today, Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were both charged with a new count in the college admissions scandal: conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery. Singer has admitted misrepresenting the children of his clients to elite universities as promising athletic recruits for sports they didn't play competitively or at all. Prosecutors sometimes add extra charges to pressure defendants into changing their pleas.

Meanwhile, a source recently told ET that the 14-day prison sentence handed to Felicity Huffman, who pleaded guilty to charges mail fraud and honest services mail fraud after allegedly paying $15,000 to have a proctor rig her daughter's SAT score, has led Loughlin to become "panicked".

Andrew Lelling, the U.S. Attorney who is the top prosecutor on the case, said in an interview with Boston's WCVB that if the case against the Full House star goes to trial the government would seek a tougher sentence than if a plea agreement is reached. The charges will further his goal of holding the defendants "fully accountable for corrupting the college admissions process through cheating, bribery and fraud", he said in a written statement.

Loughlin and her husband are accused of shelling out $500,000 in bribes to Singer, who had a network of illicit cohorts, to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California by passing the teens off as crew athletes. In the case of Loughlin and Giannulli, the indictment says, the fashion designer emailed his accountant in April 2017 to explain a $200,000 invoice he'd received from Singer.

Four parents who were indicted on Tuesday - John Wilson, William McGlashan Jr., Joey Chen and Robert Zangrillo - were also charged with aiding and abetting wire fraud.

Former "Desperate Housewives" TV actress Felicity Huffman is now serving a 14-day sentence for paying Singer $15,000 to boost one of her daughters' SAT scores. Those new charges cover fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiring to commit bribery. The accused had perviously been charged with racketeering conspiracy.
