TV sitcom actor Lori Loughlin and her husband, clothing designer Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded not guilty Monday to two conspiracy charges related to the recent college admission cheating scandal. 

Loughlin, 54, and Giannulli, 55, were accused in March of paying $500,000 in bribes to college consultant William "Rick" Singer to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits, despite neither participating in the sport. Fifty people have been charged in what was dubbed "Operation Varsity Blues."

A judge granted the couple's request to waive their right to appear in Boston federal court.

The specific charges are "conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud," as well as "conspiracy to commit money laundering."

The scandal has already negatively impacted the couple's youngest daughter, Olivia Jade, who lost lucrative deals with makeup brand Sephora and a hair deal with TRESemme. Additionally, Loughlin was fired from the Hallmark show "When Calls The Heart."

Fellow actress Felicity Huffman was also charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud, after paying $15,000 for allowing her daughter an unlimited amount of time to take her SAT. Huffman and 14 other defendants pleaded guilty on April 8.

A statement from Huffman read: "I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions."
