Lori Loughlin’s attorney says he has proof of her innocence

So here’s the story.  You remember Lori “Aunt Becky” Loughlin and her husband were pinched in the college bribery scandal that sent Felicity Huffman to jail a couple months ago.

Her defense has always been that she believed the money she paid to the sham charity of scandal’s mastermind, Rick Singer, were truly donations–and not bribes.

But now notes on Singers cell phone seem to prove Lori didn’t know it was a scam. Or at least thats the claim by her lawyers.

Singer–who pleaded guilty to racketeering and fraud in the scandal–complained in his notes sent to his lawyer that he had argued with FBI agents over the phone after they instructed him to accurately describe where payments to him were actually going–what he described as a “fib.”

“Loud and abrasive call with agents,” Singer wrote. “They continue to ask me to tell a fib and not restate what I told my clients as to where there (sic) money was going — to the program not the coach and that it was a donation and they want it to be a payment.”

Prosecutors charged that the notes were merely “a con man’s interpretation” of communication with the FBI, according to the report.

I think she should just take her lumps and get it over with. It’ll be summer soon and you wont want to be tied up in the clink while all the fam is off to the Amalfi coast for vaca.
