Lori Loughlin, known for playing Aunt Becky on Full House, is in even more legal trouble over her involvement in a college bribery scandal.

The new charges claim that Loughlin, her husband, and nine other parents conspired to pay off officials at the University of Southern California to facilitate their children’s admissions into the school.  They carry a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison.

In exchange for the bribes, school officials fraudulently designated the defendants’ children as student athletes, thus allowing them into the school with grades that would not be acceptable for a non-athlete.

The students who benefited from the bribes are no longer enrolled at USC.
