"The defendants have filed certain motions to compel ... and do not agree that the government has yet complied with its discovery obligations", they said. The defendants say the government has withheld evidence, that multiple uncharged officials at the University of Southern California were aware of the scam, and that the couple engaged in a legitimate practice in which universities "regularly solicit donations from the families of prospective students" that can impact the students' chances of admission. In the emails, Singer can be seen telling the couple that he can make their daughter look like a "real coxswain". They've been accused of bribing mastermind William "Rick" Singer to recruit them as members of the faculty's crew group no matter their exact incapacity to row.

"In fact, the Giannullis" daughter did not row crew, and was not a coxswain", the documents continue. Multiple emails illustrate in greater detail how the couple worked with Singer and his associates to create fake athletic profiles for their two daughters, who were purportedly rowing recruits, to get into USC.

"Donna asked for a picture of her in a boat", Singer wrote to one of his associates. She has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit racketeering, fraud and bribery. Singer has pleaded guilty and is cooperating with prosecutors in the case. That official offered to set up a private tour for one of the couple's daughters.

Giannulli, who was allegedly already conspiring with Singer, told the development official: "Thanks so much, I think we are squared away". He allegedly later emailed Loughlin to say that it was the nicest he had ever been at "blowing off somebody". USC isn't issuing a statement. Tours, classroom visits and meetings are routinely offered. The primary objective of a flag is to monitor the outcome of the admissions review process. He additionally instructed Singer he deliberate to say "nothing" about Isabella's admission to USC.

Giannulli's deep ties to USC extended in other ways as well.

That very same day, paperwork present, Giannulli instructed Singer that he was going to play golf with then-USC Athletics Director Pat Haden.

In keeping with this argument, Singer led these mother and father to imagine that the tens or tons of of 1000's of they paid to his Key Worldwide Basis or to his alleged accomplices at completely different universities had been "respectable" donations.

After Singer emailed Mossimo a $200,000 invoice to the charity in January 2018, Mossimo forwarded it to his financial adviser, writing, "the last college "donation" for [my younger daughter]. Can't I write this off?"

After studying {that a} Marymount Excessive College counselor had earlier instructed USC that he had no data of her taking part in crew, USC put Heinel, of all folks, answerable for investigating the complaints, the Los Angeles Occasions reported. The conversation then turned to other applicants with no further incident, according to the document.

Prosecutors requested a final status conference during the week of June 15, 2020, and estimated that the government's case will take three to six weeks of court time once the trial begins.

Singer has pleaded guilty and agreed to work with investigators in hopes of receiving a more lenient sentence. To date, the prosecution has produced 1.5 million pages of emails, 2,000 pages of legal documents and 4,000 recorded calls and text messages, according to court documents.
