What’s believed as the country’s largest college admissions scandal has stirred controversy anew as prosecutors recently released evidence that will surely irate deserving and hardworking students who wished to enter prestigious schools but were stripped off their rights by rich families.
We are talking about the resume of Olivia Jade Giannulli, daughter of disgraced couple Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli.
The resume highlighted the applicant’s alleged rowing accomplishments even though it was already established that Olivia didn’t participate in the sport.
The fake document described the YouTube star as highly talented in women’s boat and said that she joined reputable games such as the Head of the Charles Regatta.
Apart from that, it listed Olivia’s alleged skills like organization, awareness, steering, and direction. The newly released data adds to the pieces of evidence for the case against the lady’s parents, actress Lori and designer Mossimo, both of which are awaiting trial after pleading innocent to multiple charges involving their roles in the scandal.
As per the prosecutors, the resume was made by a University of Southern California official – the institution where Olivia was supposed to go. This is a nod to an insider’s claim that Olivia’s mom and dad did not have a hand in the creation of the document.
The source goes as far as to say that this was the first time Lori and Mossimo had seen the resume. The tipster further shared that the notes weren’t the couple’s handwriting.
To prove the point, the source said both the prominent personalities had no sufficient knowledge about the sport so they are not capable of crafting such a very detailed and jargon-filled resume. The husband and wife also allegedly had no idea about the prestigious races.
This detail added to the already complicated investigation called Operation Varsity Blues that looks into the college admission scandal that figured celebrities and wealthy personalities.
Lori and Mossimo were accused of giving $500,000 to ringleader Rick Singer to designate their daughters Olivia and Isabella as crew recruits to the USC.
Both of the girls did not participate in rowing. Lori and Mossimo maintained they are not guilty and asserted they gave the sum as a donation to the renowned school in good faith that it was legal to do so.
The couple argued that the admissions consultant misled them. As such, they are awaiting trial at a later date this year – if found guilty, they could face up to 45 years behind bars.
