After being charged in connection with the largest college admission scam in American history, actor Lori Loughlin finds herself out of work.
Loughlin has been fired from Fuller House, Netflix’s revival of the classic American sitcom Full House. In both series, the 54-year-old actress reprises her role of Aunt Beck, the wife of John Stamos’ character, Jesse Katsopolis. According to TMZ, Loughlin will not appear in the upcoming fifth season of Fuller House.
Loughlin was among 50 people, including actress Felicity Huffman, charged by the Department of Justice in a college admissions scandal that reportedly allowed wealthy families to scam their children’s way into prestigious universities.
The actress and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are both accused of paying $500,000 in bribes for their two daughters to be admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team, despite the fact that neither of the girls rowed.
Loughlin and her husband each paid $1 million dollar bails. She was given permission to travel to Vancouver to work but is expected to face charges in Boston federal court on March 29.
