Lori Loughlin better come up with a Plan B because a judge has denied her bid to throw out her college admissions bribery case. 

Attorneys for the actress [tried it] argued she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were entrapped by federal agents. 

They also claimed William “Rick” Singer, the admissions consultant, had been coached to “bend the truth” in his recorded conversations with the parents.

Judge Nathaniel Gorton wasn’t beat for the bull and ruled there was no misconduct on the part of the agents and denied the defense motion.

“After consideration of the extensive briefing, affidavits, and other information provided by the government and defendants, the Court is satisfied that the government has not lied to or misled the Court,” Gorton ruled. He added that evidence shows that the agents were merely trying “to get Singer to corroborate, not fabricate, evidence.”

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters into University of Southern California. 

They are headed to trial in October on charges of fraud, bribery, and money laundering.
