Federal prosecutors have released the falsified résumé they say one of actress Lori Loughlin’s daughter’s used to tout fake rowing accomplishments to USC, leading to the massive college admissions scandal.
The résumé only uses Olivia Jade Giannulli’s last name, but the graduation date lines up with Olivia’s and the résumé mentions an older sister (Olivia’s sister, Isabella, is also involved in the scandal). Several accomplishments are touted in the one-page document, including multiple medals she says she won at various events (see the document below) and a “skill set” that includes “awareness, organization, direction and steering.”
The list of accomplishments is followed by a summary paragraph that refers to Jade as a “highly talented” athlete and says that her sister is “currently on our roster and fills the position in our #4 boat.”
Prosecutors said that Olivia Jade had no rowing experience at all and never participated in a crew program.
In November 2019, Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli pled not guilty to bribery charges brought against them in the college admissions scandal.
The charges are part of a three-count indictment against the parents, who previously pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud and money laundering. Loughlin and Giannulli were among 11 parents hit with new charges by a federal grand jury in an indictment returned on Oct. 22, 2019 that said the parents “conspired to commit federal program bribery by bribing employees of the University of Southern California (USC) to facilitate their children’s admission,” according to the Department of Justice.
Last October, former “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman served 11 days of a 14-day sentence after admitting to making a charitable donation of $15,000 to participate in a college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter.
