In October, Lori Loughlin will head to trial for her alleged participation in the college admissions scam. It has been said that she has "quietly" been taking "important" steps leading up to her future court dates, but now, a new report signifies that the "Fuller House" star and her legal team believe that they could ultimately have her charges dismissed.

In 2019, Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, allegedly paid William "Rick" Singer $500,000 so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, could attend the University of Southern California (USC). Following the allegations, they were each charged with mail and wire fraud, honest services mail and wire fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery.

According to Us Weekly, both Loughlin and Giannulli are "more steadfast than ever that they did nothing illegal."

"Lori’s lawyers feel they have a very strong chance of having the charges dismissed because prosecutors withheld key evidence that [ringleader] Rick Singer was pressured by the FBI to lie in the course of his conversations with Lori," a source told the publication, adding, "It was entrapment, misleading a defendant so that Rick could get a favorable sentence for his role. Rick was the mastermind in all of this."

Furthermore, the outlet stated that the Hallmark star's legal team is asking for the charges to be "dismissed entirely or for the recorded telephone conversations to be suppressed, meaning the jury can't hear it." If these steps do not take place, the "When Calls the Heart" actress' lawyers are prepared to "grill Rick Singer on the stand," said an insider, which could ultimately result in the admissions scam "mastermind" becoming a witness for the defense.

Aside from the recent request, Loughlin's lawyers have reportedly taken other steps behind the scenes leading up to the October court dates. Not only have they reportedly indicated that they do not want her case to be "tried" in a certain way, but it has also been said that they may have a "big advantage" moving forward.
