Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli were arrested and charged in March with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud after being accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters, Bella, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19, into the University of Southern California. Earlier this month, the couple, who wed in 1997, were hit with a second charge for money laundering.

The actress and the Mossimo founder pleaded not guilty on Monday, April 15, to the two charges for Operation Varsity Blues. Each of the charges call for up to 20 years in federal prison.
