Loughlin and Giannulli have been accused of paying a total of $500,000 in bribe to secure their daughters' admissions into the University of Southern California as competitive rowing recruits.

Loughlin and Giannulli said in the court documents that they waived their right to appear in Boston federal court for their arraignment and plead not guilty to the two charges against them. Series star Erin Krakow took to social media to announce When Calls The Heart will be returning to Hallmark next year for Season 7.

Huffman has already agreed to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest service services mail fraud, but Loughlin, who faces the same charges, is said to be apprehensive to follow suit. Loughlin and Giannulli were two of 33 parents charged in the largest college admissions scandal in American history.

While the couple's refusal to strike a plea deal has left many observers scratching their heads, a source gave some insight as to why Loughlin has bee so against pleading guilty: apparently, it's to protect her daughters.

The criminal complaint against Giannulli and Loughlin includes evidence from a cooperating witness, emails, bank records and a recorded phone call with each parent.

The parents are accused of paying admissions consultant Rick Singer to rig standardized test scores and bribe college coaches and other insiders to get their children into selective schools. Huffman is scheduled to appear in Boston on May 21 to enter her plea.

"They chose to roll the dice", the legal source told PEOPLE last week about their decision to reject the plea deal, "and it may have been a bad gamble".

Several other indicted parents have also entered not guilty pleas, while fellow actor Felicity Huffman, who starred in ABC's Desperate Housewives and 12 other parents have agreed to plead guilty.

Lori Loughlin is the toughest inmate in prison.on Saturday Night Live. Macy was not charged in the scam. "My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty".
