Lori Loughlin will make her return to the screen Friday — when she pleads guilty via video to scamming her two daughters’ way into college.
Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, will appear for the video conference that members of the public can follow online by signing up through the Boston US Attorney’s Office. Participants then get a link to a Zoom video that will go live Friday morning — though photographing, recording and broadcasting the proceeding is against the law.
The couple is among the defendants forced to appear in virtual courtrooms across the nation due to coronavirus restrictions.
Loughlin, who rose to fame as Aunt Becky on the hit TV sitcom “Full House,” and Giannulli are expected to plead guilty to conspiracy charges for paying $500,000 to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, into the University of Southern California as fake rowing recruits.
The pair copped plea deals with prosecutors that involve jail time, fines and community service — despite issuing full-throated defenses against the charges in the widespread college admissions scandal.
Their sentences are subject to a judge’s approval.
