The actress and her husband were accused of paying $500,000 to Rick Singer and his Key Worldwide Foundation to falsely include their daughters -- Olivia and Isabella -- as recruits for the USC crew team.

As you know, neither of them ever competed in the sport, and at one point evidence was even filed by prosecutors of the girls sitting on separate rowing machines to make it appear like they were practicing the sport.

According to the sentencing memo, both parents worked with the children together to pretend that they were actually on their high school rowing team.

"In January 2018, Loughlin, Giannulli, and their younger daughter discussed how to avoid the possibility that a high school counselor would disrupt their scheme," the sentencing document reads.

It continues, "When their daughter asked whether she should list USC as her top choice school, Loughlin allegedly replied: 'Yes . . . . But it might be a flag for the weasel to meddle,'" referring to her high school counselor.

"Giannulli added: 'F--- him,' and remarked that the counselor was a 'nosey bastard,'" it states. "Loughlin thereafter instructed her daughter: 'Don’t say too much to that man.'"

In the end, the counselor did in fact tell USC admissions he had "no knowledge of [her] involvement in crew, and based on what I knew of her video, blogging schedule I highly doubt she was involved in crew."

Lori Loughlin is set to be sentenced later today.
