Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are due back in court on Tuesday, over their alleged involvement in the college admissions scandal.

The couple are accused of paying William “Rick” Singer $500,000 to help get their daughters Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella, 20 into the University of Southern California.

Lori and Mossimo have both pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

According to CNN, the couple will be questioned at a Boston court today about conflicts of interests regarding their attorneys from the firm Lathan & Watkins – as they have previously represented USC.

Lori and Mossimo were among 50 parents charged in connection with the college admissions scheme – which allowed parents to pay sums of money to secure spots for their children at top-ranked schools.

Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman was also among those charged, and the actress pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud – after she payed a proctor $15,000 to rig her daughter’s SAT scores.

Her sentencing is scheduled for September 21, and it’s believed she’s facing a four month prison sentence.
