Lori Loughlin felt she had 'no choice' but to plead not guilty

Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters, 19-year-old Olivia and 20-year-old Bella, admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team, even though neither of them participated in the sport.

One of Lori Loughlin's daughters allegedly is under criminal investigation for her involvement in the college admissions scandal, sources told the Daily Mail.

Well, on top of all of that, another source told PEOPLE that Loughlin and Giannulli are "outraged" that they are being called "cheaters", and stressed out about the memes and jokes.

"This is putting unspeakable stress on her and her family", a source close to Loughlin tells PEOPLE.

The couple pleaded not guilty to multiple charges on Monday, including a recently added superseding indictment on conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering as well as previous the charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud.

Still more ink has addressed Loughlin neglecting a plea deal opportunity, her feeling that she was "manipulated" into "breaking rules, but not laws", her decision to smile and sign autographs for fans ahead of her first court appearance, and reporting that Loughlin "felt that she hadn't done anything that any mom wouldn't have done, if they had the means to do so".

But with the plea now comes the possibility of a trial. She will lose every bit of her privacy, and that's a shame.

Actress Felicity Huffman was among 13 parents who announced last week they'd plead guilty in the scheme.

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