My understanding it is the husband who is insisting on pleading not guilty. The children and the rest of the family were begging her to take a plea deal. Loughlin’s potential prison sentence is up to 50 years. If she is convicted, she will certainly serve in the range of 5 to 10 years in prison, compared to the two weeks that Felicity Huffman got by pleading out early. And I see almost zero chance of her beating these charges at trial.
The United States Attorney is running out of patience. It is believed that he is preparing indictments against both of their daughters. The threat of their daughters being perp walked into a United States Courthouse might be enough to get them to plead out. If not, the daughters could be compelled to testify against the parents in return for their own plea deal.
Your daughters lives are ALREADY ****** up to a great extent, but they are not felons yet. Unless you want your daughters to be felons, I suggest you and your husband plead guilty NOW.
Might save you from quite a few years of prison as well.
