Actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have been hit with an additional charge in the college admissions scandal, which rocked the nation.

According to reports, the pair is among 11 of the 15 parents linked to the scandal to be slapped with additional charges of conspiracy per the Justice Department.

A federal grand jury felt that the others should face a charge of conspiracy to commit federal program bribery for allegedly bribing University of Southern California employees in order to get their children accepted as athletic recruits. 

"In exchange for the bribes, employees of the university allegedly designated the defendants' children as athletic recruits – with little or no regard for their athletic abilities – or as members of other favored admissions categories," U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling's office wrote.

Felicity Huffman is currently serving her out her two-week sentence in federal prison after pleading guilty early on. Loughlin in contrast, declined the deal that was offered to her, and it's now looking like she could do some serious time behind bars.
