Throughout the course of 2019, "Fuller House" actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have faced legal trouble pertaining to their alleged involvement in the ongoing college admissions scandal.

To recap, they have each been accused of paying Rick Singer $500,000 so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, could attend the University of Southern California (USC). Shortly thereafter, they were charged with mail and wire fraud, honest services mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery.

Now, Howard Bragman, a PR and crisis expert, is speaking out about how he thinks Loughlin's family has handled the admissions scam and what they could expect to happen down the road.

According to Yahoo, Bragman said that he has "not been impressed" with the way Loughlin's team has chosen to go about facing the situation.

"Here's the thing: You've got to interact the legal strategies and the public strategies - the court of public opinion and the court of law. As soon as you decide you're going to fight this in the court of law, you have a very different road to hoe in the court of public opinion," he stated. Bragman later added that he does not see a "cohesive strategy" on her part.

Additionally, Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Silva L. Megerditchian of SLM Law shared that she sees Olivia and Isabella as potentially being detrimental to their parents' future. Olivia, who unexpectedly returned to YouTube this year, has reportedly been at odds with her mom over her decision to reappear on social media. Speculation followed that she was coached prior to filming for the site and then followed a script.

"I don't think the girls did their parents any favors after the story broke" Megerditchian stated, referencing their subsequent behavior. Continuing, she asked, "Honestly, how does it help their case? Didn't they think about that? I think every single thing that they do in public has to come from: Will this help me in some capacity? And I don't see how it helps."

As for what Loughlin's legal team should do moving forward, she added, "...I will say that a very smart defense team will hold their defense very close to them."

At this time, both Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty. However, the TV personality has reportedly been taking a "grueling" step to prepare for her trial and is even said to be looking forward to certain parts of her future.
