Hallmark cutting ties with Lori Loughlin following fraud charges

Hallmark cutting ties with Lori Loughlin following fraud charges”

The Hallmark Channel brings to mind holidays, happy endings and now, incongruously, a college admissions scam that involves one of the channel's favored actresses.

"I wanted to thank you again for 91 your great work with [our older daughter], she is very excited and both Lori and I are very appreciative of your efforts and end result!"

Even though Loughlin has not submitted a plea to the charges yet, Crown Media and its affiliate networks have cut ties with the actress, halting production and development of any new projects with Loughlin, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"We are saddened by the recent news surrounding the college admissions allegations", the company said in a statement to the trade. Loughlin stars in the cable movie series "When Calls The Heart" and "Garage Sale Mystery". The most recent entry in the franchise, Murder in D Minor, premiered last August on the Hallmark Channel.

The Hallmark Channel severed ties with Loughlin on Thursday afternoon.

On Wednesday, the "Full House" star was taken into custody over her alleged connection to the scheme.

Loughlin was taken into custody by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents in Los Angeles early Wednesday after being one of over 40 people charged in a college admissions cheating scam, including her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli. Garage Sale Mystery: Three Little Murders was set to wrap filming on March 21, one week before Loughlin's next scheduled appearance in federal court in Boston on Mar. 29. East West Petroleum Ltd. said in a press release that Sidoo is no longer president and CEO of the company, but will continue to act as a director.

Loughlin did not appear in court on Tuesday because she was filming a movie in Vancouver at the time of Giannulli's arrest.

The famous actress and her husband reportedly paid $500,000 to a man in California that would help parents falsify SAT scores and have high school students pose as student-athletes to get special admission into schools.

Her parents are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. This, though neither child had participated in the sport. She appeared in Los Angeles federal court Tuesday looking visibly exhausted, before posting $250,000 bail and surrendering her passport.
