Lori Laughlin and her husband pleaded not guilty on charges connected to their involvement in the college bribery scandal. TMZ reports that the Full House star and husband Mossimo Giannulli entered not guilty pleas in court on Monday on charges of conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit money laundering. The two did not appear in court, instead entering the plea via attorney-filed documents.

The two previously refused to take a plea deal in the case, which alleges that they and dozens of others bribed college officials to help get their children into good schools. Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying Rick Singer, who has pled guilty in the case, $500,000 to get their daughters into USC on the false presumption that they would be part of the school’s crew team.

The site reports a possible plea deal is still on the table.
