(Newser) – The next hearing in the case against 17 parents charged in the sweeping college admissions bribery scandal isn't until June 3, but one tidbit about the case's progress emerged Monday by way of a motion filed by the parents. In it, they're requesting to see the prosecution's evidence, saying they have yet to see any of it, reports CNN. Per the Boston Herald, the motion adds that the defendants "have been told by the government that [their evidence] is extremely voluminous." Fox News reports that the filing also asks that all motions in the case be suspended until the defendants are able to receive and review what the prosecution has, so as not to "substantially prejudice the defendants' ability to make proper legal arguments to contest the allegations."

In other Lori Loughlin-related news, People reports former USC assistant soccer coach Laura Janke has agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit racketeering. She allegedly created fake athletic profiles for students that presented them as accomplished athletes; Loughlin's youngest daughter, Olivia Jade, was allegedly among them. Per CNN, the criminal complaint against Janke alleges she was instructed by Rick Singer to create a crew profile for Olivia Jade. An "action picture" was sought from Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli, and the complaint alleges he sent back a photo of his daughter on a rowing machine and copied Loughlin on the email. Olivia Jade, who isn't a competitive rower, was accepted to USC as a crew recruit. (Read more Lori Loughlin stories.)
