Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli leaving federal court in Boston.

And on Monday, the embattled couple pled not guilty to charges of conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering in alleged connection to the massive college bribery scheme.

Loughlin and Giannulli waived their right to appear for their arraignment in Boston federal court and plead not guilty to the two charges against them, their lawyers said in court documents.

The couple is accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as crew recruits, even though neither is a rower. Several other indicted parents have also filed court documents entering not guilty pleas.

Last week, Huffman - as well as 12 other parents - agreed to plead guilty.

Hours after announcing its annual spring offensive, the Taliban attempted an attack near the district governor's office. The Taliban ambushed a police convoy in western Afghanistan, killing seven security forces, an official said Saturday.

Each of the charges Loughlin and Giannulli face call for up to 20 years in prison, although first-time offenders would get only a small fraction of that if convicted. The Fuller House star's peer, Felicity Huffman, pled guilty last week. "My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty". The two actresses, along with coaches, admissions counselors and parents were accused of such alleged crimes as falsifying SAT scores and lying about the athletic skills of their children.

Loughlin and Ginnulli have hired a team of high-profile attorneys to represent them in the case. According to the reports, federal prosecutors were requiring some prison time for all the plea deals, so Huffman is expected to do between zero and six months, per federal guidelines.

A new superseding indictment unsealed last Tuesday alleges that Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, disguised their bribes to the ringleader of the scam as donations to fund programs for "disadvantaged youth".

Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli have officially said "no way, Jose" to a plea deal.
