The judge must approve their request for a waiver to appear.

Loughlin and Giannulli have been accused of paying a total of $500,000 in bribe to secure their daughters' admissions into the University of Southern California as competitive rowing recruits.

Huffman has already agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest service services mail fraud, but Loughlin, who faces the same charges, is said to be apprehensive to follow suit.

In a statement released, producers confirmed they would no longer be working with Lori in light of the college admissions scandal.

The paperwork was filed on behalf of Loughlin and Giannulli, a designer, on Monday in US District Court in Boston.

Several other parents who were indicted alongside Loughlin and Giannulli last week have also filed court documents entering not guilty pleas.

Federal agents obtained emails from Loughlin and a recorded conversation in which Loughlin and Giannulli implicated themselves in the scam, according to the documents.

In March, the couple was indicted for allegedly taking part in a large scheme involving parents who paid substantial bribes to get their kids into elite universities. So that is something that has understandably made her less likely to enter a plea, ' the unnamed person told People.

Loughlin was followed by autograph seekers while awaiting the court hearing at the J. Joseph Moakley Courthouse in the Seaport and smiled and waved to some fans as she walked into the building via metal barricades set up by court security personnel. Loughlin and Giannulli reportedly were slapped with an additional charge of money laundering after rejecting a plea deal.

Felicity Huffman, the other high-profile actress charged in the case, has agreed to plead guilty and has expressed remorse in paying Singer $15,000 to doctor her daughter's SAT test results, something Huffman insisted her daughter didn't know.

"I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community".

Gather round, children, because I have an update on everyone's favorite college admissions scandal, aka "Operation Varsity Blues."
