The defence attorneys claim that they have new evidence that would clear the couple of any wrong doing in the college scheme.
The U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton said that the couple’s trial starts on Oct.5 in Boston federal court alongside six other prominent parents accused of rigging the college admissions process. Seven others still fighting the charges will go to trial in January 2021.
Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded not guilty to all charges — and turned down a government plea deal — last April after news broke of the scandal in early March.
Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters into USC as recruits to the rowing team, though neither was a rower.
