Both Loughlin and Giannulli are due to face court on Wednesday.
They are among the 33 wealthy parents accused of cheating their children’s way into college. Actress Felicity Huffman has also been charged in the bribery scheme.
Loughlin and her husband allegedly paid mastermind Rick Singer hundreds of thousands of dollars to bribe USC coaches into selecting their daughters as crew recruits when neither rows.
Their daughters, 19-year-old Olivia Jade and 20-year-old Isabella, have both dropped out of school as a result of the scandal.
Friends say Olivia – a YouTube star who admitted previously that she was only going to college to party, is not speaking to her parents and feels like the victim.

The teenager feels that she has had her life ruined by her parents’ meddling and is particularly angry because she never wanted to go to college in the first place.
Instead, she was eager to focus on her career as a YouTuber and beauty influencer, they say.
Loughlin is not the only celebrity indicted as part of the scandal.
Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman has also been charged for allegedly paying $15,000 to have someone else alter her daughter’s entrance exam.
As part of the scheme, Singer either lied about a student’s athletic ability, had someone else sit their SAT exam for them or had someone alter their answers once they had finished to get them a higher score.
In some cases, the children were unaware that their applications had been helped along by their parents’ cash.
It is unclear if Loughlin or Huffman’s children knew of the alleged meddling.
As part of the indictment, 50 people were charged including coaches at USC and other schools, test administrators who allegedly looked the other way in exchange for bribes to facilitate the cheating, and the ‘really smart’ guy who sat SATs and ACTs for under-performing students.
