Lori Loughlin in total panic mode


Lori Loughlin, I’m told, was originally pretty sure she was going to just skate by on her $500,000 bribery charges and never see the inside of a jail.  That’s why she refused a plea deal offered to her that would send her to the big house for 2 years.  Now she’s coming down to reality and it is a bitter pill.

“Sources” (I loathe that word) say she is freaking out.  Her refusing the offer has only made the charges increase and now she’s facing up to 40 years!! Not that she’d ever get all that. But still.

‘Lori is finally realizing just how serious this is. She is seeing the light that she will do jail time and is freaking out,’ a source told E! News.

Separately, it has been claimed that prosecutors want to make an example of the pair.

‘They really want to make sure that there isn’t this perception that these people are able to skate by because they’re rich.

They want to make sure everyone is equal in the eyes of the law. They know this is a high profile case and they want to make an example of the defendants,’ a source told People.
