Actress Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli reportedly will plead guilty in connection with the U.S. college admission scandal.

The couple had for months planned to fight charges in connection with paying $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of Southern California. 

As part of the reported agreement with the Justice Department, the couple will reportedly plead guilty Friday to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.
