Actress Lori Loughlin reportedly feels confident she won’t be going to prison for her alleged involvement in the “Varsity Blues” college admissions scandal.

Loughlin and her husband believe they have a good chance of getting acquitted if they take the case to trial, according to a report published Wednesday by People.

The actress and her husband have been accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to secure their daughters’ admissions into the University of Southern California.

“The more that [the attorneys] look at the alleged evidence against them, the better they feel about the case,” a source told People. “Everyone is feeling more and more confident that this could end well for them.” (RELATED: Lori Loughlin Still Searching For Crisis Manager Amid College Admissions Scandal)

“Lori feels like so much damage has been done publicly that the only way for her to counter it is to fight this case in court,” the source said. “She feels like once all the evidence is presented, that people will understand how things happened.”

The couple pleaded not guilty to charges of money laundering and wire fraud for paying Rick Singer to get their daughters into USC as fake rowing recruits.

“She feels like she’s got a valid defense, and that when all the evidence comes out, that she won’t be found guilty,” the source added.

As previously reported, if convicted, the couple faces up to 20 years in prison for each charge.
