BREAKING NEWS: Charges for Lori Laughlin expanded to include MONEY LAUNDERING!!!

Aunt Becky is toast.

"Federal prosecutors indicted the Hollywood actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, the designer Mossimo Giannulli, along with 14 other parents on mail fraud and money laundering charges on Tuesday, the latest development in the sweeping college admissions fraud investigation.

Thirteen of the 33 parents originally charged in the case have agreed to plead guilty, and it was expected that prosecutors would move soon to indict most of the other parents in the case. It was also expected that, in indicting them, they would add an additional charge, of money laundering conspiracy.

Ms. Loughlin and her husband are accused of conspiring with a college consultant, Wiliam Singer, to pay $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits to the women’s crew team, even though neither of the girls actually participated in the sport. Ms. Loughlin, best known for her role as “Aunt Becky” on the television show “Full House,” has already suffered some professional consequences of the charges. The Hallmark Channel said that it would stop development of shows that feature her.

Her daughters, both current students at U.S.C., have also faced repercussions, as U.S.C. has placed an academic hold on students tied to the scandal, preventing them from registering for classes.

Most of the parents in the case, including Ms. Loughlin and Mr. Giannulli, were originally charged in a criminal complaint with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Prosecutors had a limited period of time in which to formally indict them or the complaint would be dismissed."

I love that I get to keep posting my desire for punishment, it's evolved... I think Loughlin and her husband spent $500,000 to get one or both of their daughters into college. For me, the only appropriate punishment is

a) jail time - several months satisfies

b) a full out IRS audit - go back 10 years. That will really make Lori and every other adult mixed up in this scheme sweat.

c) Lori to set-up a $500,000 scholarship fund. Lori, the husband her spawn MUST accept and read the applications, meet the finalists and see who is actually deserving of a scholarship, contact and speak to all applicants who did not receive an award, and then provide five $20,000 grants for five years.

This means they actually do something worthwhile with their wealth. The punishment is ongoing. the punishment affects their bank account, the punishment may actually teach Lori, the husband their spawn something important.

The same goes for Felicity and other parents... I think Huffman spent $15,000 so that means two $5,000 grants over three years worth of scholarships.

I recently stumbled across a video on YT from a girl who talked about how in her Sophomore year in High School she was approached by USC to sign a letter of intent to attend and be part of their Rowing team. Because she did, I think she said she didn't bother applying elsewhere. Come her Senior year in High School she got a call from the recruiter saying that her spot had been taken (despite her already signing the letter of intent), and basically, "too bad for you."

It turns out she would have gone to USC and rowed in the 2019/2020 year, meaning her spot was most likely taken by one of Loughlin's kids.

I wondered if she could sue USC and/or Loughlin.

How could it possibly be worth it to spend that much on a bribe to get your moron children into these schools? Around 500,000 for the bribe plus the cost for four years for a kid who is obviously stupid as hell. Why not just light it on fire? Do these people not see how stupid their children are? Do they not read report cards etc? Attend parent-teacher things where the teacher informs the parent their kid has to crack the books?

by Anonymousreply 3604/09/2019

[quote]How on earth is this money laundering?

I think the money laundering charge stems from the fact that they paid the money to a fake “charity”, knowing it was being used for criminal purposes.

Then they wrote off the charitable contribution as a tax deduction as well, which is a separate crime.

by Anonymousreply 3704/09/2019

Oh I see, I didn't realize they made payments to a fake organization.

Still, I'm not sure that's money laundering, because money laundering is the other way around -- it's ill-gotten gains being put into respectable destinations to hide the fact that it's ill-gotten. This seems to me to be the other way around. They got the money legitimately (from movie salaries or investments or whatever) and put it into a fake charity.

Funneling them suggests that Laughlin then had agency in moving them out of the phony charity and into something legit. Did they? Sounds like bullshit to me TBH. The parents paid the scamster, and then he took it from there.

Money laundering because ... they knew he was going to do that? Still sounds a bit bogus to me.

I don’t understand those that don’t think it’s money laundering. Here’s a rudimentary example.

I’m not going to permit you to post on DL anymore unless you pay me $1 per month. But you can’t send me the dollar because that will create a paper trail. I want you to “donate” that money to the charity I created called “Datalounge Posters Charity,” then I’ll pull it from there and your records will look like you donated to a charity, not bribed me to keep posting.

Together we acted in concert to “launder” the $1 that you’re giving me every month. Doesn’t matter that the dollar is cleaner than a nun’s cunt when you give it to me (as in you’ve earned it). Your donating to my “charity” is laundering that money so it doesn’t appear to be a bribe.

Interesting, because I think your scenario shows why it's not money laundering, not why it is. Your definition arguably makes any exchange of money at all for a criminal activity money laundering. That's not what money laundering is. Money laundering is conducting financial transactions with dirty money to hide the dirt on the money. Your argument is bootstrapping itself so that any payment in a crime could arguably be money laundering.

The reason it's boot strapping is, the money is supposed to be the proceeds of a predicate offense. So, because it's a predicate offense, that is an offense that occurred prior to the financial transaction in question. If the financial transaction itself is the offense, it's not a predicate offense.

As perhaps you can see, I looked this up, lol. I did so because the charge bothered me, not because I sympathize with the women, but because it seems like piling on a charge that's no applicable to the case.

Here's money laundering. A drug dealer sells drugs. The payments he receives are the proceeds of a crime. He then invests the money in his bank account.

Here's not money laundering -- a drug dealer sells drugs and tells his buyers to deposit the money into his bank account via atm. That's not the proceeds of a predicate offense, that's the actual offense itself.

Sorry, but I think the government is overreaching. The jury will have to decide, of course, unless the attorneys for the defense are able to argue as I have just done and get the charges on those counts dismissed.

Money laundering requires a financial transaction.

They were part of money laundering R115. They knew the money they were paying was going into a fake charity.

by Anonymousreply 11604/10/2019

The Oxford dictionary says money laundering is the process of concealing the origins of money obtained illegally by passing it through a complex sequence of banking transfers or commercial transactions. The mastermind obtained the money illegally in that he obtained pay,ent for illegal activities. In order to conceal why he got the money, he had them pay it to the charity as if it were a legitimate charitable donation, when in fact, that wasn’t the intention. He obtained the money illegally and laundered it through the charity to conceal the origins. Lori and crew knowingly paid to the charity with the intent to help the mastermind conceal its illegal purpose.

by Anonymousreply 11704/10/2019

I don't disagree that he committed money laundering, but they didn't. The offense is the payment to him of money for influence in getting college admissions. The payment itself can't be its own predicate offense. That's a circular argument.

by Anonymousreply 11804/10/2019

Right, but they knowingly contributed to the laundering. I wonder if he official charges are available. That would probably clear it up.

by Anonymousreply 11904/10/2019

I'm not sure that rises to the level of money laundering though -- the DoJ itself says, on its web page about money laundering:

[quote]To be criminally culpable under 18 U.S.C. § 1956(a)(1), [bold]a defendant must conduct or attempt to conduct[/bold] a financial transaction, knowing that the property involved in the financial transaction represents the proceeds of some unlawful activity, with one of the four specific intents discussed below, and the property must in fact be derived from a specified unlawful activity.

by Anonymousreply 12004/10/2019

Also, r119, I suspect the prosecutors will absolutely argue that the payment by the parents is money laundering for the reason that some people are asserting here in the replies. But if the transaction is the crime, then it's not the proceeds of a predicate offense.

Who knows, maybe they can convince the judge and jury of that, but it seems to me to be inapplicable to the parents' actions. There's plenty of other stuff to go after them about.

Apparently they caused such a ruckus that the ringleader of this whole scam told them both to keep it down so as not to attract unwanted attention.

I bring that up because these two entitled twats may genuinely believe they did nothing wrong and therefore likely ignored advice and decided to go for broke. Time will tell how that little gamble plays out....

by Anonymousreply 13004/10/2019

For all of you saying Lori will be acquitted, that is not going to happen. There are sentencing guidelines the judge has to follow, and good luck finding a jury that feels sorry for her after her stunt. She may not even have a jury trial, but elect instead to go in front of a judge. She should have pled guilty like Felicity did. Even with a guilty plea, Felicity is going to prison for a few months. You have to serve 85% of the time you were sentenced to before being considered for release. Lori really is toast, she is likely looking at years, not months. Same with her husband.

You can't pay a fine to get "out of" money laundering, that is a very serious charge. She is likely going to get hit on tax evasion charges next. Not over for her by a longshot. I'm sure this isn't the first sleazy thing Ms. Lori and Mr. Lori have done. Plenty of skeletons just waiting to fall out is my vibe.

She might have a small chance on appeal saying she had shitty council, because from the (bad) looks of it so far, that appears to be true. Still, that would only be delaying the inevitable. Eventually, just like Martha, Lori is going to have to spread her cheeks and cough.

From the Atlantic article:

[quote]The argument that the scheme hurt disadvantaged applicants—or even just non-rich applicants who needed financial aid to attend these stratospherically expensive colleges—isn’t right either. Elite colleges pay deep attention to the issue of enrollment management; the more elite the institution, the more likely it is to be racially and socioeconomically diverse. This is in part because attaining this kind of diversity has become a foundational goal of most admissions offices, and also because the elite colleges have the money to make it happen. In 2017, Harvard announced with great fanfare that it had enrolled its first class in which white students were in the minority.

[quote]In the recent past—the past in which this generation of parents grew up—a white student from a professional-class or wealthy family who attended either a private high school or a public one in a prosperous school district was all but assured admission at a “good” college. It wasn’t necessarily going to be Harvard or Yale, but it certainly might be Bowdoin or Northwestern. That was the way the system worked. But today, there’s a squeeze on those kids. The very strong but not spectacular white student from a good high school is now trying to gain access to an ever-shrinking pool of available spots at the top places. He’s not the inherently attractive prospect he once was.

[quote]These parents—many of them avowed Trump haters—are furious that what once belonged to them has been taken away, and they are driven mad with the need to reclaim it for their children. The changed admissions landscape at the elite colleges is the aspect of American life that doesn’t feel right to them; it’s the lost thing, the arcadia that disappeared so slowly they didn’t even realize it was happening until it was gone. They can’t believe it—they truly can’t believe it—when they realize that even the colleges they had assumed would be their child’s back-up, emergency plan probably won’t accept them. They pay thousands and thousands of dollars for extended-time testing and private counselors; they scour lists of board members at colleges, looking for any possible connections; they pay for enhancing summer programs that only underscore their children’s privilege. And—as poor whites did in the years leading up to 2016—they complain about it endlessly. At every parent coffee, silent auction, dinner party, Clippers game, book club, and wine tasting, someone is bitching about admissions. And some of these parents, it turns out, haven’t just been bitching; some of them decided to go MAGA.

[quote]And so it was that at 5:59 on the morning of March 12 in the sacramentally beautiful section of the Hollywood Hills called Outpost Estates, all was quiet, save for the sounds of the natural world. In the mid-century modern house of a beloved actress—a champion of progressive values, as is her husband—and two lovely daughters, everyone slept. But at the strike of 6:00, there was the kind of unholy pounding at the door that must have sounded more like an earthquake than a visitor: FBI agents, guns drawn, there to apprehend … Felicity Huffman? Felicity “Congress is attempting to eviscerate women’s health care. Like many women across America, I am outraged” Huffman? For the crime of … paying to get her daughter an extra 400 points on the SAT?

[quote]Down, down, down she went in the FBI car, in her handcuffs and athleisure, down below Outpost, down below Lake Hollywood, down below the Dolby Theatre where she had been so many times—in a beautiful gown, with her famous husband, William H. Macy, beside her—to watch the Academy Awards, once as a nominee. All the way down to—my God!—the downest place of all: Spring Street. The federal courthouse! This was where Donald Trump was supposed to go, not Felicity Huffman. Cool your heels, defender of the downtrodden: There is no rushing through all this—the mug shot, the phone call, the hearing. And this can’t even be grist for the mill of a new devotion to the plight of American mass incarceration. You’re now Exhibit A of law enforcement finally treating rich, white Americans as unsparingly as it treats poor, black ones.

Not one of the earlier posters about money laundering, but the charge of money laundering is legitimate because they paid money for an illegal activity and tried to hide the activity by paying it to a charity, which was also illegal because it was simply a funnel for illegal payments. They probably also took a tax deduction on the money paid as a “donation” to the fake charity, which could mean there are some IRS penalties to come.

The fact they tried to “clean” a payment made to fund illegal activity makes it a laundering issue. I hope that makes sense.

by Anonymousreply 18804/11/2019

There was no way it was her Legal Counsel's fault she didn't take the plea deal.

The threat was clear, "If you don't take the plea deal we are adding on charges of Money Laundering."

Lori and her husband obviously thought it didn't pertain to them, thought they could buy their way out of it, or whatever... she doesn't seem to have taken any of this seriously and thought she was going to skate through it. Her actions scream that she's definitely someone who thinks she's smarter than her Legal team.

Please! Most of these charges will be dropped by the time this goes to trial. Prosecutors always try to load as many charges as possible up front for maximum effect.

In my opinion the only people who deserves prison in this scenario is that crook who took all the money to get those kids accepted into the schools, as well as anyone who helped in the process. The parents did wrong but in their idiotic but misguided ways just wanted the best for their kids. They need some huge fines and some long community service.

Both of their going careers--her acting, his sportswear--are doomed until forever. It will be in the news for years. It will wear them down. And they will end up in prison anyway. Plus, they might even end up losing a good bit of their money if they get nailed for tax evasion.

He can get readmitted to the bar. There is never really a complete disbarment - you actually get a suspension. I think pretty much every state you can reapply after 5 years.

People need to stop reacting to the Not Guilty pleas at the arraignment. That is all you do at an arraignment - you are read your charges and you enter a not guilty plea, demand a speedy jury trial, reserve your various rights, and get your warnings of the penalties for failure to appear at the next court hearing, sign the paper and leave. Arraignment is not a hearing for the entry of a guilty plea.

r338 WHAT? Permanent disbarment is indeed a thing in certain states. California is one of them.

Immediate Release

March 06, 2015

WASHINGTON, DC – The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) today imposed a $10 million civil money penalty against Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort (Trump Taj Mahal), for willful and repeated violations of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). In addition to the civil money penalty, the casino is required to conduct periodic external audits to examine its anti-money laundering (AML) BSA compliance program and provide those audit reports to FinCEN and the casino’s Board of Directors.

Trump Taj Mahal, a casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, admitted to several willful BSA violations, including violations of AML program requirements, reporting obligations, and recordkeeping requirements. Trump Taj Mahal has a long history of prior, repeated BSA violations cited by examiners dating back to 2003. Additionally, in 1998, FinCEN assessed a $477,700 civil money penalty against Trump Taj Mahal for currency transaction reporting violations.

"Trump Taj Mahal received many warnings about its deficiencies," said FinCEN Director Jennifer Shasky Calvery. "Like all casinos in this country, Trump Taj Mahal has a duty to help protect our financial system from being exploited by criminals, terrorists, and other bad actors. Far from meeting these expectations, poor compliance practices, over many years, left the casino and our financial system unacceptably exposed."

Trump Taj Mahal admitted that it failed to implement and maintain an effective AML program; failed to report suspicious transactions; failed to properly file required currency transaction reports; and failed to keep appropriate records as required by the BSA. Notably, Trump Taj Mahal had ample notice of these deficiencies as many of the violations from 2012 and 2010 were discovered in previous examinations.

Director Shasky Calvery expressed her appreciation to the Internal Revenue Service, Small Business/Self-Employed Division, which performed the examinations of Trump Taj Mahal, for their contributions to the investigation and for their strong partnership with FinCEN. She also thanked the Commercial Litigation Branch of the U.S. Department of Justice for their assistance with this enforcement action.

Trump Taj Mahal petitioned for bankruptcy in September 2014. That bankruptcy remains pending. The Bankruptcy Court approved of Trump Taj Mahal’s settlement on March 4, 2015.

Companies cannot be prosecuted for felonies.

R373 Is that your response to R372?

by Anonymousreply 374Last Wednesday at 6:17 PM

Wonder if Lori will turn on her husband. He did lie to his parents and received tuition money from them when he claimed he was enrolled at USC. He even went so far as to make fake report cards.

by Anonymousreply 375Last Wednesday at 6:22 PM

Not so, r373. I've worked on criminal prosecutions of corporations.

by Anonymousreply 376Last Wednesday at 6:40 PM

Welp, article at R375 explains their terrible legal decisions: their attorney is Mossimo's frat brother (!) who's not even a criminal attorney (!). Dude previously drew up patent applications for Olivia Jade.

r377 I didn't know that. The level of idiocy of these two is amazing. They need the best defense lawyer money can buy.

by Anonymousreply 378Last Wednesday at 8:16 PM

r377 Weren't those patent applications rejected for bad punctuation and spelling?

[quote] I don't think Felicity should get prison time, community service. She came clean,

Oh NO she didn't. They came to her and told her they knew everything she did and they already prosecuted the ringleader. The ringleader who had just conversed with Felicity while the feds were listening/watching about the fraud/cheating Felicity just paid the guy for. They had emails, texts, phone calls from all these people to the ringleader where they discussed paying him to have people help their kids cheat, bribe college officials and 5 other felony offenses

Felicity had NOTHING at all to bargain with. The ringleader was the first to get caught. He turned everyone else in. Her only choice was to plead guilty and throw herself on the mercy of the court

I'm afraid it will be death by lethal injection for Ms. Loughlin.

Why concentrate with Felicity R380?

[quote] They can change their plea at any time and many attorneys seem to think they will do that at some point to avoid going to trial

A prosecutor can tell them the deal is off the table. Or they can actually alter the terms of the pleas agreement by increasing the amount of time they want them to serve. This is a crime, multiple felony crimes. You don't get a do over, without a penalty

When you go to trial (and you lose) or you waste the prosecutor's time and the taxpayer's money, there's a penalty for that. If I remember correctly I think I've heard it called, "the going to trial penalty"

Lori should be thrown in jail just for being a stupid bitch.

by Anonymousreply 384Last Wednesday at 8:35 PM

If I were a parent trying to get my child into a specific college I would have no problem convicting Lori and her husband. This is beyond wanting the best for your child. This is wealthy entitlement

by Anonymousreply 385Last Wednesday at 8:39 PM

Mommy Lori's bright decision to take this to trial has earned her phenomenally stupid daughter a criminal investigation of her own

Who wants to bet that border line retarded daughter didn't claim all her gifts, payments and other forms of financial remuneration she received from the companies that she mentioned on her "influencer" blogs/social media pages? Her reward is this investigation from the federal prosecutors/investigators and another one coming soon from the IRS

Damn, the whole Lori Family is going down the SHITTER!

What if I do a YouTube video for the IRS? I can tell errrybody about their latest app for filing taxes. Will that let me be free?

[quote]They need the best defense lawyer money can buy.

Sort of reminds me of the Simpson case. When OJ was brought in to be interviewed by the cops, he brought his lawyer Skip Taft with him. The problem was Skip was his business lawyer, not a criminal defense lawyer and, not only let OJ go talk to the cops, didn’t even sit in the room with him. He went out to lunch!

Who's the fug with the green tie?

Lori and Mr Lori can write a book from prison: WHAT NOT TO DO

Save yourself, OJ!!

by Anonymousreply 391a day ago

Maybe on the train to prison, the train will derail, allowing her to escape and find shelter with an insane man who think she's his dead wife. These things have happened before.

R392, LOL.

Hallmark goes to the dark side...

$5 says that Mrs. and Mr. Lori will be divorced within 2 years.

R386 I pray to God that will prove that he exists and that Heavenly retribution exists on Earth by making that spoiled bray spend a year or two in the slammer.

by Anonymousreply 39519 hours ago

If they can send that real housewife and her husband to prison they can do the same to Lori and her husband.

by Anonymousreply 39618 hours ago

Then what we’ll want is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area.

by Anonymousreply 39716 hours ago

R7. Don’t be so sure. Remember Patti Hearst?

by Anonymousreply 39816 hours ago

I would like to see OJ take some responsibility for her part, perhaps just as Lori is to be sentenced she can stand up in court and say “I volunteer as tribute!”

by Anonymousreply 39916 hours ago

[quote]Remember Patti Hearst?

Yeah. The only person ever to be pardoned by two separate presidents.

No wealthy privilege there. At all.

by Anonymousreply 40016 hours ago

She doesn't want to go to jail. They want a plea with a fine and some community service.

I would have taken the 4 months that Felicity is doing. Probably get out in 2 and she can write her memoirs in the special cell block for rich bitches.

by Anonymousreply 40116 hours ago

r377 Mossimo went to college? How is he in a frat? Olivia Jade said she is going to college because her parents didn't.

by Anonymousreply 40215 hours ago

Felicity hasn't been sentenced R401 and since it is federal she will have to do 85% of the term.

by Anonymousreply 40315 hours ago

R402 I know, I know Fox News, but it does answer your question. He pretended to enrolled at USC and even lived in a frat house, but secretly diverted the funds to use the money to start his t-shirt business. Apparently OJ was bragging about it days before the arrests.

by Anonymousreply 40414 hours ago

R402 he scammed his own parents: he got them to send him tuition $$$ but never enrolled, just hung out with a frat. He's in the frat membership pics.

Lori is insanely hot.

by Anonymousreply 40512 hours ago

Mr. Lori has a son from a previous marriage. I wonder where the son went to college and if there was scamming involved.

by Anonymousreply 40612 hours ago

This has opened a can of worms for these people. The IRS is on their tail now.
