The Buffalo News - - NATIONAL NEWS -

LOS AN­GE­LES – Ac­tress Lori Lough­lin, one of the most high-pro­file de­fen­dants in the col­lege ad­mis­sions bribery case, is plead­ing not guilty to the charges against her, court doc­u­ments showed Mon­day.

Lough­lin’s not guilty plea comes a week af­ter 13 other par­ents, in­clud­ing ac­tress Felic­ity Huff­man, in­di­cated that they would plead guilty in what pros­e­cu­tors have de­scribed as the largest-ever col­lege ad­mis­sions pros­e­cu­tion.

Lough­lin waived her right to ap­pear in court for an ar­raign­ment af­ter be­ing in­dicted last week on a count of con­spir­acy to com­mit fraud and an­other of money laun­der­ing con­spir­acy. Her hus­band, fash­ion de­signer Mos­simo Gian­nulli, is also plead­ing not guilty to the same charges, doc­u­ments showed.
