Mossimo Giannulli College Cheating Scheme
Giannulli and his wife Lori Loughlin agreed to pay bribes totalling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California (USC).
In an email sent on 24th July 2016 William Rick Singer, the key founder of USC, told Giannulli that his older daughter academic qualifications were at or just below the “low end” of USC’s admission standards and thereby advised him to bribe the University of the daughter’s admission to USC as a recruited crew coxswain, even though she did not row competitively or otherwise participate in crew.
Giannulli allegedly sent Singer an email where he attached a photo of his older daughter on an ergometer on 7th September 2016. A month later USC senior associate athletic director Dr Donna Heinel “presented the Giannulli’s daughter to the USC subcommittee for athletic admissions as a purported crew recruit.” At the meeting, she was approved for admission by the subcommittee.
After the admission of his daughter, it is alleged that Giannulli wired $200,000 to The Key Worldwide Foundation as a donation but it is suspected that the money was a payment for a job well done.
It is alleged that later Singer emailed Giannulli asking if there was another similar “need anywhere so we do not lose a spot” to which Giannulli responded, “Yes [our younger daughter] as well.” Singer asked to be sent the transcript and test of their younger daughter as soon as the semester was over.
It is alleged that a few months later Singer emailed Laura Janke, a former assistant coach of women’s soccer at USC and asked her “to prepare a crew profile for the Giannulli’s younger daughter.” Janke wrote back affirming that she would start as soon as she received “the pertinent information,” according to the complaint.
According to the complaint: ” On or about July 16, 2017, [Singer] e-mailed the Giannullis requesting information for the crew profile. [Singer] indicated that the profile would present their younger daughter, falsely, as a crew coxswain for the L.A. Marina Club team, and requested that the Giannullis send an “Action Picture.” Four days later, [Singer] sent the Giannullis a second request, noting, “If we want USC I will need a transcript, test scores and picture on the [rowing machine].” Loughlin, copying Giannulli, replied later that day, ‘[Mossimo] will get this done. We are back in town on Monday.'”
A week later Giannulli allegedly emailed a picture of Olivia to Singer posing on a rowing machine which was presented to the USC athletic admissions committee who quickly accepted her due to her athletic prowess. Just like in the first case Giannulli wired $200,000 “donation” to The Key Foundation.
