Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli entered a not guilty plea Monday over their supposed role in the nationwide college admissions scandal. They are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters in to the University of Southern California. Last week, the parents were additionally charged with mail fraud and money laundering. That could mean a maximum of 20 years in prison.

Both Netflix and the Hallmark Channel have parted ways with Loughlin since the scandal broke. She was most known for her role as Aunt Becky on "Full House" and its reprisal "Fuller House." Thankfully for some of her Hallmark costars, "When the Calls the Heart" was renewed for another season without her.

It was a much different story for the other actress accused of admissions cheating for her daughter, "Desperate Housewives'" Felicity Huffman. Huffman pleaded guilty last week and apologized for her actions.

While not as high profile, dozens of other parents have been identified in the admissions scandal.
