American actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, accused of paying a $500 000 (about R7 million) bribe to secure their daughters' entry into a prestigious California university, on Monday pleaded not guilty to money laundering charges.
The couple waived their right to appear before a judge to be formally accused and entered their pleas through documents filed by their attorneys, according to documents seen by AFP.
"Full House" star Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, were among the 50 people - including "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman -indicted in the wide-ranging college bribery scandal.
Huffman pleaded guilty to paying $15 000 to boost her daughter's SAT college entrance exam score.
Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli are accused of paying $500 000 in 2016 and 2017 so that their two daughters could gain entrance into the University of Southern California (USC) by posing as members of the rowing team.
