Legal issues continue to follow both Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli. Earlier this year, they were accused of paying Rick Singer $500,000 so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, could attend the University of Southern California (USC). Subsequently, they were charged with mail and wire fraud, honest services mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery.

Now, new court documents that were filed in U.S. District Court on Dec. 13 state that the couple suspects federal prosecutors are withholding information about the ongoing college admissions scandal.

According to NBC News, attorneys for Loughlin and Giannulli stated that they "urgently needed" a judge to intervene. Additionally, the filing states that they believe prosecutors are refusing to turn over documents that reportedly illustrate that they believed their payments would be used in legitimate ways. As reported by People, attorney Sean Berkowitz, who is representing the couple, claims that the evidence is being withheld due to the fact that it was deemed irrelevant.

However, prosecutors previously stated that they were in possession of an invoice Giannulli sent to his accountant where he said he had to "work the system" so that one of his daughters could attend the university.

Previously, it was reported that the "Fuller House" actress had developed a new "concern" about her sentencing due to recent comments made by the presiding judge and a lengthy prison sentence that had been given to another parent involved in the admissions scam. As a result, some speculated that she may "cop a plea deal" in order to circumvent a possible trial.

As for Olivia Jade, the YouTuber recently resurfaced in an unexpected video following nearly nine months of silence on the site. It has also been said the decision to return to social media has caused issues between her and Loughlin as the TV star reportedly saw her daughter's behavior as a "big betrayal."

At this time, both Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to all of the aforementioned charges, but an insider said last month that she has already started taking a "grueling" step to prepare for her upcoming trial.
