A Los Angeles attorney says Lori Loughlin should be very worried in the wake of Felicity Huffman's 14-day prison sentence in the college admissions scandal, Yahoo reports. "The fact that Huffman got any jail time after her admission of wrongdoing does not bode well for Loughlin," attorney Silva Megerditchian says. While Huffman pleaded guilt and showed remorse after her arrest, Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli have fought their felony charges, a strategy that could come back to haunt them should they be found guilty. Huffman "took responsibility for her actions, and apologized both privately and publicly," Megerditchian said. "Yet despite her accepting full responsibility and for all her apologies, she still got jail time." People reports that Loughlin is "processing" Huffman's sentence this weekend. A source told the outlet, “If she’s found guilty, she will go to jail; that is clear. And if another deal is offered to her, which I don’t think it will be, she will go to jail. Her only chance of avoiding jail is to beat these charges." The source adds that Loughlin "regrets" her decision to pass on the plea offer, noting, “She didn’t understand the entire nature of the charges against her, and she wasn’t even sure if or how she had broken the law."
