I have a half-assed guess to explain this morning’s news but as always legal eagles are invited to correct me.
One theory being kicked around is that Loughlin and her husband actually believe they can win at trial.
A legal expert offered a third reason Loughlin and her husband have chosen to fight the charges, instead of taking plea deals like the other parents. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, defense attorney Lara Yeretsian suggested that the case against some of the parents may not be the slam-dunk people assume.
“Most of them could make a good case that they were entrapped,” Yeretsian said.
The focus of such a defense would be on William “Rick” Singer, the college admissions consultant who pleaded guilty to multiple charges involved in different bribery schemes he used to get the children of wealthy parents into well-known U.S. colleges.
