(Newser) – Despite an alleged $500,000 spent to get them into the University of Southern California, Lori Loughlin's daughters are no longer enrolled at the school. Olivia Jade Giannulli, 20, and Isabella Rose Giannulli, 21, "are not currently enrolled" but "we are unable to provide additional information because of student privacy laws," USC says in a statement, per CNN. Meanwhile, a source tells People that their mother is keen to know how Felicity Huffman is managing a week into her 14-day jail sentence in California. "She feels like Felicity's time in jail will be an indicator on her own time," so "she wants to debrief Felicity after jail to find out what it was like and what her advice would be," the source says.

Four other parents—including ex-Pimco CEO Douglas Hodge—pleaded guilty to charges related to the college admissions scam in Boston on Monday, as Huffman previously did. The top prosecutor in the case later indicated Loughlin would receive a "substantially higher" sentence than Huffman, who paid $15,000 to have her daughter's SAT answers corrected. However, TMZ reports prosecutors may now be willing to negotiate with Loughlin, who allegedly paid $500,000 to have her daughters added to a list of USC rowing recruits. She and husband Mossimo Giannulli, 56, each face up to 40 years on charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering, per Page Six.
